Our History

Worthing Community Chest is a local charity whose aim is to support projects and activities in Worthing that work to improve Worthing and bring our community together. We were established in 2001 and, since then, we have helped more than 300 groups and awarded over £300,000 in grants.

We do this through our grants project, awarding up to £1,500 to community groups and charities in the town. We will consider supporting any group in the area who match our criteria and whose objective is to improve the community.

  • Attending board meetings, one every 6 weeks
  • Keeping up to date with the progress and work of the charity
  • Commit to 2-4 hours of additional work within a committee or representing us at events
