Nationwide Community Grants


Focus of the Fund

Nationwide Building Society was founded to help people into homes of their own and its ambition that everyone should have a place fit to call home stands firm today. The Nationwide Community Grants programme awards up to £500,000 across 11 UK regions annually and is looking for local housing projects that will strengthen local communities to support the most vulnerable by:

– Preventing people from losing their home;

– Helping people in to a home;  and

– Supporting people to thrive within the home environment.
