Grants of up to £10,000 for Science and the Arts Projects (North West of England)

Organisations (preferably with charitable status) based in the north-west of England are invited to submit imaginative proposals for projects that encourage and promote the study, practice and appreciation of science and the arts. Awards of £500 to £10,000 are made 3 times a year (with the average award being around £2,000).   

The aim of the Granada Foundation is to make the north-west of England region (including Cheshire Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside and Cumbria) a richer and more attractive place in which to live and work. 

Awards are unlikely to cover 100% of project costs. Previous awards have been made to support a wide range of projects and have included, for example:

  • The Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths Network (STEMNET) received a grant of £4,000 to purchase STEM Club boxes for use in after school science clubs across the region.
  • Blackburn Cathedral Trust received £2,000 for a Music Outreach project.

Organisations wishing to apply, please email brief details in the first instance to If the project meets the funding criteria a full application pack will be sent by email.

The next closing date for applications is the 31st October 2022.
