Voluntary and community groups helping to improve the health and wellbeing of residents can now apply for the latest round of financial support.
Thanks to Nottinghamshire County Council’s Local Communities Fund, eligible groups will once again be able to apply for a range of grants to help to contribute to meeting their needs.
These include two types of cost-of-living grants aimed at groups who are:
- Helping those who are struggling to buy nutritious food to help improve health and well-being and build resilience. Groups can apply for up to £5,000;
- In need of a contribution towards their own rising energy bills to help keep their welcoming and warm centres and halls open across the county, particularly during the winter months. Once again, groups can apply for up to £5,000.
Groups can also apply for up to £20,000 in capital grants to help towards improvements to facilities that help improve health, wellbeing, and the environment such as improvements to sports facilities, play areas or green spaces.
Revenue grants are also available to help projects with their day-to-day running costs such as paying wages and bills. Groups can apply for up to £5,000, to help access to community-based services for those most in need or for schemes which benefit the environment.
The deadline for applications is 24 November. For further details of eligibility criteria as well as how to apply go to: www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/LCF
