A total of £20,000 is available for each area to resource a range of great ideas that make a positive and visible difference to your local area / neighbourhood. Your idea must meet at least one of the priorities identified in your local action plan and be led by or involve the community.
These may include:
•Activities for adults (like dance, cooking or fitness classes etc)
•Activities that enhance community pride
•Services and activities for children and young people
•Activities for seniors
•…and much more!
How much can you ask for?
Individual grants of up to £2,000 (exceptionally £3,000) will be available for initiatives that meet the eligibility criteria and also achieve the required levels of support / votes from the local community. This will be achieved through our online voting platform set up on facebook.
