Fast Funding

The council has received Shared Prosperity Funding (SPF) from central government, to support its revised Fast Funding Community Grant scheme. Qualifying community organisations, including registered charities, voluntary organisations and social enterprises, are invited to apply for a grant of up to £1,500 to deliver a project or activity that will provide benefits for Erewash residents.

All applications must show how their project or activity will achieve one or both of the Fast Funding Community Grant scheme’s outcomes:

  • Increased engagement (of at least 10%).
  • Increased volunteering (of at least 10%).

For detailed information and advice about how to complete the online application form please read the Fast Funding Community Grant scheme guidance notes. Alternatively, please contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Support for local groups and Community Sport Providers

Erewash Borough Council Sport and Health Development Team strive to support local community groups and clubs in a variety of ways. We appreciate grant funding is a challenge for most groups and we are committed to supporting groups in this area. As a service we don’t have funds to support clubs directly but we can offer the following:

  • Regular updates on local, regional and national funding opportunities.
  • Dedicated staff to support groups with funding applications.
  • Networking opportunities, promoting shared resources.
  • Information regarding local and national campaigns that groups can take advantage of.
  • Support in accessing relevant training for staff and volunteers.
