Community and voluntary groups across Erewash have another chance to apply for grants of up to £2,000 to help them with their work in the borough. Erewash Borough Council has opened a further round of funding through its Community Grants scheme and wants local groups to get in touch and apply for support ahead of the closing deadline of 12.30pm on Monday 24th July. Countless groups have been helped over the last few years through the grants scheme, ranging from Scout groups to charities like Sight Support Derbyshire. Councillor Gerri Hickton, Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Community Engagement, says:
“We want to get the message out to groups in all corners of our borough that these grants are on offer to help them. We have helped so many since we launched this scheme but we still want to hear from the many more groups we know are out there working to help people living in Erewash. It doesn’t matter how small the group is, we want to hear. Will a grant of up to £2,000 help you? Then get in touch now!”
The deadline for community grant applications is 12.30pm on Monday 24th July. Full details of the scheme and how to apply for a community grant are available at www.erewash.gov.uk - via the ‘Community and Living’ tab and the link to ‘Grants’.
Anyone needing help or advice regarding completing the application form can contact the council’s Community Engagement Officer Colin Handley via email firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0115 907 2244.
