Thousands in funding available for Community Groups

Thousands in funding available for Community Groups

Community groups and sports clubs across the District of Blaby are being encouraged to apply to the Council's Community Grants scheme to help with their projects.

£90,000 is available during 2019/20. Even more funding has been made available thanks to the money raised through the Love Blaby Lottery and a £2,000 contribution from Everyone Active.

A wide range of grants are available from £500 to £4,000 for both revenue costs, such as equipment hire and marketing, and capital projects, including building refurbishments. Most grants are awarded quarterly and the next deadline is looming, closing on Thursday 06 June. More »

Three more application rounds will take place, with deadlines in September, November and February 2020. Youth Grant applications for up to £500 can be made at any time.

The Council has awarded hundreds of thousands of pounds through the Community Grants scheme since the initiative launched over a decade ago.

Local mental health support group Blaby Mind Matters received a grant last year to help pay for room hire costs. Jen Fielding, Local Area Co-ordinator for Blaby, who helped set up the group, said: "Community Grants funding has made all the difference for this group being able to continue to support people with mental health needs."

Ann Dixon, Chair of the Blaby & Glen Parva Community Service, said: "The Drop-In centre is a lifeline for many elderly people who live alone and can feel isolated. Community Grant funding to upgrade our kitchen has helped us to achieve a five-star food hygiene rating and benefit many of the groups using our centre."

Community Grant applications can now be completed online. For more information, including terms and conditions, application deadlines and how to apply, visit www.blaby.gov.uk/communitygrants, email grants@blaby.gov.uk or call 0116 2727566. » Less
