Great Get Together Grants




In June 2017 and June 2018 communities up and down the country came together on the anniversary of Jo Cox’s death to celebrate all that unites us.

In 2018, Bolton at Home were part of 11 different events across our communities and now we’re planning our next Great Get Together events for 21st – 23rd June 2019.

Small grants 
• 3 Big Grants up to £500 are available. One for each of the new areas in Bolton (West, South and North Bolton).
• Approximately 20 smaller grants for up to £300

Deadline Tuesday 7th May, 12.00noon. Successful applications will receive their grant by Friday 31st May

What kind of Activities will be funded?
It could be a street party, something active like a hula hoop contest, community walk or sports day. It could be a shared barbecue, picnic or a bake off… what matters is that we have fun and bring our communities closer together.

These grants will prioritise activities involving Bolton at Home tenants or activities based in Bolton at Home Estates.
