Community Chest Fund

Awarding grants to support local projects and communities.

We are excited to be able to offer funding to local community groups and projects, where we can make a real difference to people's lives.

Our community chest fund is open to all local community groups connected to CHIC’s members.

CHIP believes in supporting residents in local communities. We seek to promote, encourage, and support communities by offering funds to local projects with clearly identified objectives.

Who can apply?

There is no specific model required for the projects that we will fund, as long as there is a clear vision for the project that will benefit communities, by having a positive impact, to improve the lives of people within them. There is a section in the CHIP CCG guidance document, that refers to specific eligibility criteria.
