Croydon Council has announced the fifth round of their Small Grants Fund, giving financial support to small projects to help them get off the ground.
The projects that the Council funds are intended to improve the quality of life for local people and their communities. They are very keen to see small scale projects where modest funding will help people make a real difference and help unlock other resources.
In this round the Small Grants Fund will support projects which:
• improve the network of advice and support to individuals and families affected by welfare reforms;
• help people care for one another’s health and wellbeing;
• improve local family support networks and good parenting;
• manage local publically owned assets for community benefit; and/or
• promote new ways of working with young people and help them make their voices heard
More information can be found on the Council website where they set out the full eligibility criteria.
The Council will be holding a workshop for anyone who would like to apply for a grant on Monday 17 June (6pm - 9pm) at Croydon Town Hall. The deadline for the receipt of applications is 5.00pm Monday 15th July 2013.
Interested applicants should contact Yvonne Gaye to book their place (firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 8604 7029)
If you know any small groups which the Council may not be aware of or you know people thinking of setting up a new group, please pass on the details of the fund to them.
