Local groups encouraged to apply for capital grants improvements scheme

Local not-for-profit community organisations are being encouraged to apply for grants of up to £30,000 from Warwick District Council’s Rural and Urban Capital Investment Scheme (RUCIS).

Following a brief pause last year as the Council focussed on administering much-needed funds for local voluntary and community organisations involved in supporting residents during the pandemic, the scheme is now open and organisations looking for grants to support capital improvement projects are urged to apply.

Consideration is given to organisations looking to purchase or upgrade their property or equipment in order to provide their services to the community, such as:

  • Energy efficiency improvements and renewable energy technology
  • Providing disabled access or facilities
  • Resurfacing of car parks, sports courts and play areas
  • Essential building repairs
  • New facilities such as kitchens or toilets

In previous schemes, Leamington Cricket Club received £4,496 towards the refurbishment of their toilet facilities; and Hill Close Gardens received £30,000 towards an extension to their existing visitor centre.
