Small Sparks Grants are grants of up to £250 for anyone in Gloucestershire who wants to get together with friends and neighbours, including people with disabilities and mental health challenges, to do things together that they enjoy, for the benefit of their community. In 2014 66 Small Sparks Grants were given to groups of friends and neighbours across the county totalling £16,125. Applications were made by arts and craft groups, lunch clubs, choirs, community cafes, sports groups, a men’s group, a bird watching club and many more.
