Santander Community Plus Awards have grants of up to £5,000 available for small local charities or local projects of national charities with funding available to cover salaries, equipment or materials. Grants must directly help disadvantaged people in your local area.
- The only criteria for the Community Plus grants are:
- The organisation must be a UK registered charity
- The organisation must be a local charity or local project of a larger charity
- The grant must benefit local disadvantaged people
The scheme is designed to be quick and simple to use and nominations can be made by charities as well as Santander customers and staff. Just visit any Santander branch and complete a Community Plus Nomination Form. The completed form
should then be dropped into your local branch. This is a local grants programme and the branch staff are part of the assessment process.
How to Apply
There are no closing dates and entries will be considered by a panel of staff drawn from across the region every month. Successful charities will be notified within a month of submitting their nomination by e-mail. If you have not heard within a month then you have been unsuccessful, but you are free to apply again at any time.

This form still needs to be dropped into your local branch for their consideration. There are no deadlines.
