Small grants scheme

The Small Grants Scheme provides additional grants for which commoners who have entered the VGS can apply.

It offers maximum grants of £2,000 per application towards the cost of capital items that will support their commoning activities.

Examples of successful applications include:

  • financial contribution towards building a new barn for a young commoner
  • buying a cattle crush for a group of commoners
  • installing a water supply to a field used for back-up grazing.
