Our Community Enterprise Ltd is a social enterprise company which is contracted by the Royal Borough to provide a local Development and Funding Service.

They were established to maximise the amount of external funding that could be secured for the benefit of the borough's residents and local communities.

The service seeks to match local projects to potential funding opportunities, and can provide advice and guidance on funding applications. This support will usually be free.

They will advise how best you can find funding for your project, and what work you will need to do to maximise your chances of being successful.

Grant Finding Software

Access to a grant finding database for students and those in apprenticeships to help uncover top up fees is available from a joint project between us and Our Community Enterprise.

The new software allows users to search a large database of offers, check their criteria for eligibility and then apply directly, saving hours of time and making applications more efficient. The cost of the software licence has been covered by us and will be made available at eight local sites:

  • Elevate Me, Unit 37, Nicholson Centre, Maidenhead, SL6 1LB
  • Maidenhead Library, St Ives Road, Maidenhead, SL6 1QU
  • Windsor Library, Bachelors Acre, Windsor, SL4 1ER
  • Ascot Durning Library, High Street, Ascot, SL5 7JF

The software is aimed at those who have been unsuccessful at finding government grants or bursaries and charitable grant funding, particularly those who have specific welfare, hardship or educational needs. Users can go along to any of the sites for access to the database.
