The My Community fund
As part of our promise to make a positive difference to homes, lives and communities, Homes Plus supports a wide range of projects run by voluntary groups and organisations here in Staffordshire and Shropshire.
If you have an idea that will benefit your neighbourhood, or you are involved with a great project in your area, we could provide the funding to help you succeed.
The My Community fund is a Homes Plus initiative to support grassroots and community projects. You can apply for a grant from the fund by telling us about your idea and how we can help you make a difference to our customers and the wider local community.
We prioritise projects that benefit the communities in which we work, our customers and their neighbourhoods.
Organisations already sponsored by the My Community fund have provided training and learning opportunities for local people, created a new allotment and sensory garden for older residents and restored a community bowling green to improve the mental and physical wellbeing of members and help bring people together.
If those great projects have inspired you to do something amazing in your neighbourhood, we want to hear about your idea.
You can apply for sponsorship from the My Community fund online, by clicking ‘apply now’ below. If you would prefer to complete a paper copy of this form, please download it from our customer documents page.
