Can Do - get it while you can!!!

Interest in this scheme is high - once the money is gone, it's gone, so take advantage of it as soon as possible.  
Groups undergoing the funding health check have found it to be a useful process, and not at all daunting.  It can also be done over the phone.
So here is the information you need to know:

Up to £2000 will be available for groups supporting identified local need and activity, for small scale capital projects, that will make a big impact.

Groups wishing to apply will go through a funding health check with a PAVO Development Officer. This useful tool, enables us to ensure your group is eligible, reducing the volume of paperwork that usually accompanies an application.
Groups will be expected to find match funding of 33%, e.g:
Application to fund for £2000
Match from group £660
Total Project Costs £2660

Projects should fit one of the following criteria:
  • Creating or refurbishing facilities available to the community as a whole or adapting them to ensure equal access to disabled people as required under the Equality Act 2010.
  • Acting to improve the built or natural environment for local people
  • Improving the well-being of the community by encouraging activities and healthy life styles
  • Providing facilities or activities which reduce poverty, inequality, discrimination and social disadvantage
  • Encouraging training that targets vulnerable or excluded people
  • Stimulating community businesses and social enterprise
  • Assisting the promotion of job opportunities and increased incomes
  • Involving people of all ages and abilities in the community and addressing the needs of socially excluded groups
  • Strengthening the cultural and linguistic identity of the community
