Funding available for local groups – deadline 24th September

Posted on August 26, 2014 by



Local voluntary and community groups have until 5pm on Wednesday, September 24th to apply for matched funding grants of between £500 and £2,500.

Matched Funding means that any money applied for must be ‘matched’ by the same amount in volunteer hours, cash donations, other grant funding or ‘gifts in kind’, which is the value of donated items, equipment or room hire.

Priority will be given to those groups working with children and young people, tackling environmental issues, supporting stronger and safer communities, promoting health and wellbeing and providing access to learning, skills and employment support.

There is £16,963 available up to March 2015 from the government funded Community First grants pot. See links below for more information and an Application Form
