Individual & Community Grants (ICG)

The UKEDC Individual & community grants scheme is there to support individuals and events within the equality dance community. These are open to both members and non-members of the UKEDC.

UKEDC Individual Grant

The UKEDC is offering individual grants of up to £250 to individuals who intend to enter in equality dance events. We have previously awarded for:

  • Dance Shoes
  • Dance Lessons
  • Competition Entry
  • Competition Travel
  • Medal Test Fees

This is by no means an exhaustive list, and we encourage all applications. Please read this document UKEDC Individual Grant Process before applying as it sets out the eligibility criteria and the terms and conditions for the individual grant.

UKEDC Community Grants

The UKEDC is providing grants of up to £250 to support events and projects that help promote equality dancing.  These can be applied for at any time, but ideally at least 90 days before the event is to be held. We will do our best to consider applications made with shorter notice, but we cannot guarantee that we will do so.  We have previously awarded for:

  • Venue Hire
  • Equipment Hire
  • Equipment Repair
  • Equipment Replacement
