Community grants

Other community funding opportunities


Bubble is a platform that:

  • Brings people, projects and funding together
  • Helps people to help themselves
  • Promotes projects and opportunities

If you have an idea for local improvements, then Bubble can offer support by putting you in touch with others in your area, provide practical advice, promotion and sources of funding.


Bubble promotes a range of funding opportunities, including details about application criteria, deadlines and information on funding civic improvements. Funding opportunities can include grants from government, corporate and charitable organisations, internal council funds and also crowdfunding.


Crowdfunding is a way for a large number of people to pledge support and donate money to projects. There is dedicated section for civic projects in the borough called Ealing Hive, which is on the Spacehive website.

Ward forums

Ward forums have an annual budget of £30,000 which is available for local improvement projects to benefit their ward. For more details about having a ward forum community project approved, visit Bubble.
