As part of our role as the Area Lead Organisation we run a number of grant programmes. The following funding programmes are now open.
Please read through the guidance notes before completing your application.
Please complete, sign and return applications to Van Henry.
From our knowledge of local needs it has been agreed that the following local
priorities will underpin all our grants:
Community Cohesion – tension between new and existing communities, and issues between students and permanent residents;
Crime & Community Safety;
Food & fuel poverty;
Loneliness and isolation - especially among senior citizens;
Mental Health – both primary and secondary (diagnosed and low level); and
Translation and conversational English support, especially among the new and emerging communities (i.e. North African, Eastern Europe and Roma);
Our delivery partners are signed up for the next three years, and we will only have an open funding process if a new need becomes identified or a current organisation stops delivering their work. For further information about our delivery partners click here.
As well as our main programme, we also fund a 'Summer Activities Programme'.
We have funded a number of local groups in Area 4 (to provide training to local people over the age of 30 who are not in work.
This programme will be launched shortly.
We have supported a number local groups located in Area 4 (Arboretum, Dunkirk & Lenton, Radford & Park) with grants that have addressed the local priorities listed at the top of this page.
This community grants programme is now open for 2017-18 and is a rolling programme so has no closing date
