Transform your area with
Our Place

Applications for the grants programme are now open

What is Our Place?

Our Place gives your community control over local services – it helps bring communities together in partnership with local organisations and service providers to look at the issues that most matter to them.

You can influence how local budgets are spent by redesigning, managing or delivering services locally.

Your community may be lacking in provision for young children, debt and poverty could be putting pressure on the local health service, high unemployment may be triggering anti-social behaviour, and lack of transport links creating rural isolation amongst older people.

Our Place can help you come up with a solution which will transform the area you live in!

What does the programme require you to do?

As an Our Place area you would be able to access grants of £8,000 during the programme. 20 areas that identify innovative and powerful solutions to challenging issues – ‘breaking new ground’ projects can apply for grants of up to £12,000. Have you got a groundbreaking idea?

Success stories

Our Place 2015-16 comes after a successful first year of the programme. Take a look at some of the inspiring projects from last year.

Our Place Smethwick – bringing together local networks to help integrate a diverse community with a history of unrest

Our Place Ventnor – addressing deprivation and unemployment in a coastal town by working with the private sector and others
