THE TWO RIDINGS COMMUNITY FOUNDATION has grants available to groups in the North and East Riding that are tackling an identified disadvantage.
The Sports Relief Community Cash fund offers from £500 – £1,000 to constituted voluntary or community groups that are working in a disadvantaged or deprived area. Eligible projects may be sports related but this is not essential. Groups must be run by local people and have an annual income of less than £100,000.
“We believe that local people know what is needed in their community and are best placed to make any changes. Having lots of activities happening in an area brings vibrancy to a local community which can make it a better place to live. We are also aware that many people are undertaking great work in their area but often struggle to get the support they need. We therefore want to support community groups undertaking work that helps people of all ages feel more included in their community, builds their skills and increases their sense of achievement.” Two Ridings Community Foundation eligibility statement.
There is a two stage application process. The first stage is an online application, and the second involves sending supporting documentation.
The Two Ridings Community Foundation is delivering Sports Relief Community Cash in partnership with Comic Relief and the Hull Daily Mail.
The Closing date for applications is Friday 9th March 2012. Decisions on applications will be made by 20th April 2012.
