About Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Small Grants Fund

B2022 Small Grants is a pot of funding for between £100 - £2500 for community organisations to deliver events and activities. Successful projects will:

Achieve at least one of 3 outcomes:

  • Bringing people together: celebrating sport and physical activity, connecting to the cultural vibrancy of the Commonwealth, and supporting cultural diversity and inclusion.
  • Improving health & wellbeing: focus on participation including those who are inactive to become active. It can also tackle inequality in participation including access to kit and equipment.
  • Helping the region to grow and succeed: focus on supporting volunteers and workforce development.

Achieve at least one of our 3 values:

  • Collaborative (sharing with others in the community) - E.g. finding a new group that have never visited your place or activity before and celebrating together, be it a sporting activity or a social gathering to watch the games.
  • Inclusive (helping everyone take part) - E.g. attending training to learn how to be more welcoming for a new group with a health condition, or creating a new activity session so that they can take part.
  • Adaptable (changing to attract new people or meet the needs of others) - E.g. creating an online session to include inactive groups, or purchasing some specialist equipment so that everyone can be active together.
