Funding available for community projects in Blacon
14 December 2022
Funding is available for projects that will make a positive difference to the local community in Blacon.
We’re currently inviting applications to our Neighbourhood Plan fund, which aims to support initiatives and activities that will have a lasting impact for Blacon and the people who live here.
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 should fit one or more of our 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’re committed to investing in projects that will benefit the local community and help us ensure Blacon remains a great place to live.
“We know there are lots of great ideas out there and we look forward to hearing from groups and individuals who can help us make a real difference.”
Further details and application forms are available here. Applications must be submitted by 31 January 2023 and we’ll aim to contact applicants by March to let them know if their bid has been successful.
While we’ll aim to support as many projects as possible, we do have limited funds available and may not be able to fully fund all projects if demand is high.
For more information, or support with making an application, please call Glen Murphy on 01244 305518, Sandra Hewitt on 01244 305456, or contact us by email.
