Applications Open for £2.5m Communities Fund

Small grassroots community groups, including neighbourhood organisations, parishes and local voluntary groups, are set to get a direct funding boost of £2.5 million from the government.

The new Communities Fund is launched to help local people who are struggling to manage. It will be targeted depending on local pressures, and could be used to help those facing domestic abuse, to provide support for disabled children’s services or to support those facing long-term unemployment.

Alongside grants of £70,000 or more, grassroots organisations will benefit from expert advice from the local government sector, training from a ‘grassroots network’ and advice on evaluating the success of their services.
