Small grants scheme, in the making, is a new funding programme for community projects that share our aim of embedding art, culture and heritage at the heart of the major development and regeneration planned for Old Oak and Park Royal.


We are offering micro-grants to support community arts, culture and heritage projects taking place in Old Oak and Park Royal, led by those living and working in the area.


We hope it will uncover, connect and showcase the culture, creativity and heritage of London’s largest and most vibrant industrial area.


The programme is part of the Great Place scheme, funded by the National Lottery, Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund and managed by OPDC.
