Money available for community groups
COMMUNITY groups in the Consett area are being urged to apply for a slice of £40,000 of public money.
The Derwent Valley Partnership is providing the opportunity for groups and organisations to apply for a community grant to help deliver projects and activities locally.
Applications can be made for a grant of between £1,000 and £5,000 and projects must meet criteria such as employment and regeneration, activities for children and young people, local environment and street cleanliness, health and wellbeing and communication.
Those projects which are eligible will have to attend a forum event on Saturday, November 16 from 10am to 2.30pm in St Patrick’s Church Hall to display their project information.
Applicants will then be expected to promote the event so as many people as possible can vote for their favourite projects.
The projects receiving the most votes will receive a share of the funds we have available.
Anyone interested in applying to the Community Grant Fund who would like to receive an application form, contact 03000-260-725, e-mail email@example.com The deadline for completed applications is Friday September 13.
