Welcome to Grassroots - Help us celebrate 25 years of giving

The Voluntary and community groups across Colchester and Tendring are celebrating cash hand-outs in our latest funding round.

We are a registered charity which has been operating since 1991, specialising in making small grants to voluntary and community organisations involved in social welfare in North East Essex.

13 grants were awarded in the latest funding round and details of the awards are recorded on the beneficiaries page.

Sue Hawes, Director of Grassroots, said ‘There are people living in Colchester and Tendring who are lonely and isolated. We are delighted that we have been able to help some of these individuals through the many voluntary good causes we support’.

Grassroots is launching an appeal aiming to raise £25,000 in its 25th year of operating to help even more people in need. If you would like to donate by clicking on the donate button below or would like to apply to become a trustee please get in touch on 01206 587000.


Every donation, whether it be big or small is greatly appreciated. Most of all, every penny goes to charities that make a difference.


Are you a charity looking for support? Grassroots can help. We offer a number of grants for charities looking to start or grow.
