Dover Distric Council Coommunity impact fund

Calling all Voluntary Sector Organisations!

In line with the council’s cost-of-living plan, the Community Impact Fund is a new grant scheme that will support residents through the cost-of-living. Applicants must demonstrate the impact the current cost of living is having on their beneficiaries, as well as how their project intends to help bridge the cost-of-living gap, for the benefit of Dover District residents.


The grant must be used to pay for clearly defined future costs associated with local projects. Eligible costs include any Capital, Consumable or Revenue Costs.


Applications are welcomed from community organisations and groups including:

  • Registered Charities
  • Charitable Incorporated Organisations (CIO)
  • Community Interest Companies (CIC)
  • Social Enterprises
  • Constituted Voluntary/Community groups
  • Constituted Sports Clubs/groups
  • Constituted Youth Clubs/groups
