Community Chest Grant


The Flintshire Community Chest Grant Scheme is administered by Flintshire Local Voluntary Council (FLVC) on behalf of Flintshire County Council. 

The Grant was established to support voluntary and community activity in Flintshire and any non-profit making community / voluntary organisation operating in or serving all or part of Flintshire, independent of statutory or public bodies can apply.  Application can be made for a maximum of £1,000. Any application for a grant submitted in Welsh will not be treated less favourably than an application submitted in English.

The aim of the grant is to support one off initiatives such as:

  • Minor capital projects for example, building repairs and updating internal fixtures and fittings
  • Community events
  • Equipment but not consumables*
  • Feasibility studies
  • Publicity / marketing
  • Training and awareness events/courses

*Any equipment bought with the grant must remain the property of the group and must be available for more than one member to use.

Priority will be given to local community groups of a smaller size.

Please note that the application form and guidance notes have recently been revised.
