Community and voluntary organisations, small groups and charities are being urged to apply for funding support as part of Erewash Borough Council's Community Grant Scheme before the 9am deadline on Monday 17 December.
The latest funding round is due to close shortly and the council is keen for groups both large and small to apply for up to £2,000 for projects and services that benefit Erewash residents.
The council are once again continuing their support to voluntary organisations and have made funding available to help as many groups as possible and are particularly keen to hear about new and innovative projects that could benefit from a grant.
Groups such as those supporting older people, community and voluntary organisations - ranging from scout groups to charities like Sight Support Derbyshire – along with play schemes, arts and sporting groups, all made successful bids for a small grant last year.
Councillor Gerri Hickton, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Community Engagement, says:
“There are many groups in Erewash who play vital roles in helping to bring people in our community together. We want to make these groups aware that they may be eligible for a small grant to help with their invaluable work.”
Full details of the scheme and how to apply for a grant are available at erewash.gov.uk/grants.
Anyone needing help with their application or wanting more information can contact the council’s Community Engagement Officer, Colin Handley, via email firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0115 907 2244 extension 3575.
