Funding is available for projects that advance citizenship or community development in South of England, Scotland, and Wales.
Registered charities, SCIOs, constituted voluntary and community groups, social enterprises, community interest companies (CIC), not-for-profit organisations and sports clubs are eligible to apply. Grants range from £500 to £20,000 for organisations in Scotland and South of England and up to £10,000 for those in Wales.
For this round, applicants from England must be based in one of the following regions:
- South West England - Bristol, Gloucestershire, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, Devon, Cornwall.
- South East England - Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, East Sussex, Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Kent, Oxfordshire, Surrey and West Sussex.
- East of England - Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk, East Anglia.
Funding is available for projects that advance citizenship or community development. Advancing community development involves creating opportunities for the community to learn new skills and, by enabling people to act together, helps further social inclusion and equality.
The Trust is looking for projects that engage local communities and leaves a positive long term impact beyond the duration of funding. Priority will be given to projects that are focused on improving life for disadvantaged groups and encouraging their inclusion within society.
Projects that have a focus on sport, health, reducing poverty, environmental improvement or the advancement of human rights are still eligible for funding as long as they are strong in meeting the above community development criterion.
The deadline for applications is 30 April 2015.
