Is your community, voluntary or social enterprise group in need of financial support for a project, service, event or activity that benefits residents across South Gloucestershire?
Our Area Wide Grant (AWG) is currently available and the deadline for submitting applications is midnight on Thursday 24 October. This is the second and final round for the financial year 2019/20.
This grant can be used to support community projects, services, events or activities that will benefit residents in at least six of the 14 Community Engagement Forum areas (see www.southglos.gov.uk/cef for more info).
The maximum grant amount is £3,000, although there is flexibility for higher awards for both exceptional circumstances and budget availability.
Cabinet Member for Communities Cllr Rachael Hunt said: “These Area Wide Grants help us support some of the community organisations that are working for residents across South Gloucestershire. £34,356 is available in the Area Wide Grant budget for round two this year and voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations are encouraged to apply, along with town and parish councils.
“Examples that could be eligible for funding include projects that reduce isolation and exclusion, events that bring communities together, activities that promote health and mental well-being or services that address a particular community need.”
All organisations must complete registration details online and have these approved prior to application. For more information please refer to our registration guidance available on our website www.southglos.gov.uk/AWG
