Community Fund

The University of Derby has pledged to develop a Civic University Agreement, a document that will be co-created with local partners, and will reaffirm the University’s ongoing commitment to playing its part in the city and county’s prosperity and wellbeing.

The first phase of the University of Derby becoming a ‘Civic University’ is understanding and establishing the needs and priorities of communities, businesses and organisations across Derby and Derbyshire. Find out more about the University's Civic Agreement.

While we are in this consultation phase the Community Fund is currently not open to applications. Following the development of our Civic University Agreement, an update regarding the Community Fund will be stated on our website.

The University of Derby is proud to have supported more than 100 projects since the Community Fund launched in 2014 and we look forward to working closely with local communities and organisations in the future.
