Council extends deadline for community grant applications

Published: Thursday, 12th March 2020

Broadland District Council is asking local groups to apply for Community Grants of up to £300.

The grants can be spent on a range of things from venue hire, to promotional materials, transport or extra facilities and community groups have until 31st October to apply.

Councillor Fran Whymark, portfolio holder for Housing and Wellbeing said:

“We are pleased to be able to offer this additional help to the wide range of community groups across Broadland. These grants are a fantastic opportunity for the Council to support the invaluable work that these groups do across the district.”

From football teams to support groups, Community Grants are open to any community group in Broadland to fund activities that benefit residents in the local area.

This could be through encouraging local residents to be fit and active, offering support for mental health and well-being or bringing the community together and fighting isolation and loneliness.

If you think your community group could benefit for a grant of up to £300 you can apply for grant and find full details of the terms and conditions on the council’s website or you can request a form from the Communities Team on 01508 533933 or email [email protected]

The deadline for applications is 31st October 2020 or until all the funding has been used.
