Project Village Survival

Project Village Survival is our small grants programme which funds projects that are addressing rural community resilience and ensuring their village’s future viability and “thrivability”.

The Prince’s Countryside Fund (PCF) was established in 2010 and for over a decade has been awarding grants to community-led projects supporting the UK’s rural communities. This forms one of the PCF’s strategic aims of Building Confident Rural Communities.

“Too often, rural communities are without access to transport, jobs, housing, shops and community spaces. The Prince’s Countryside Fund powers community-led solutions through our grants and resources to ensure that they flourish – now and in the future.”

Successful projects will protect or boost community assets and enterprises, reinvigorate service provision, and strengthen the sense of community to tackle isolation in the countryside. Previous examples have included community breweries, transport schemes to link up essential services, and befriending schemes.

Project Village Survival is not currently open for grant applications.

We are grateful to players of People’s Postcode Lottery for their ongoing support.
