Community groups are being invited to apply for up to £3,000 to help kick start small projects that will make a positive and lasting impact in the community by either improving health and wellbeing, increasing enterprise and training opportunities, offering more things for people of all ages to take part in, making people feel safer or creating more for children and young people to do.
The Gaunless Gateway Big Local Partnership community projects fund can be used to pilot new things, buy equipment or run special events.
So far this year, 20 projects have been supported across West Auckland, St Helen Auckland, Woodhouse Close and Tindale Crescent, Henknowle and Cockton Hill, to carry out a diverse range of activity.
The next round of funding opens on Saturday 18th November with the closing date Friday 29th December.
Groups are expected to receive a decision within six weeks.
To check if you are eligible to apply, contact contact Barbara Slasor, Community Engagement Officer on 01388 776688, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.gaunlessgateway.co.uk.
