Celebrate is now closed to new applications.
Six out of ten people surveyed* said they could not remember ever coming together to celebrate with their community. Through our Celebrate programme we decided to help change this.
We offered grants of between £500 and £5,000 for groups to hold one off events or activities which celebrate their local community.
It could be to celebrate something from a community's history or a local hero, or just a chance to bring people together to get to know their neighbours better.
Although the programme is closed, keep an eye on our social media channels to find out more about the projects that received funding.
Our Celebrate map gives more information about some of the Celebrate projects which have been funded.
