Funding available to support community projects in Blacon

20 December 2019

Funding is available for projects that will make a difference to the lives of residents and the local community in Blacon.

Avenue Services’ Neighbourhood Plan fund is still open for applications from organisations and groups who would benefit from some financial support to deliver initiatives and activities.

Grants of up to £5,000 are available and individuals, community and resident groups, schools, registered charities, social enterprises and local businesses are all invited to apply.

Projects must benefit Blacon and successful applications will fit one or more of Avenue Services’ priorities for the fund:

  • Building connections and reducing isolation
  • Helping residents better manage their money
  • Increasing skills and employability
  • Growing neighbourhood pride and community safety
  • Sustainable lifestyles and greener living

Paul Knight, Head of Avenue Services, said: “We are keen to support projects that will deliver positive impacts for the Blacon community and help our residents live happy, healthy and fulfilled lives.

“We’re looking forward to hearing from groups and individuals who can help us to make a real difference.”

Further details and application forms are available here and applications must be submitted by 20 January 2020.
