Community Chest Open for applications from 9th May to 9th June!
Our Community Chest is a small grants programme that makes funds of up to £500 available to local groups and organisations that want to run a one-off or short-term community activity or project for the benefit of people in the William Morris Ward.
The grant is available for projects that help build relationships, unite the community and create a sense of belonging and togetherness. Example projects might be food and music festivals, community film nights, skill sharing clubs or help a neighbour scheme, but these are just a few ideas and the possibilities are numerous!
The grant is aimed at local community groups and small charities based or working in the Ward. Please spread the word if you know a group that could benefit from the grant and put it to good use! If you are an individual with an idea or part of a newly formed group then we’d love to hear from you too but before you apply we may need you to seek the support of an established community group or charity.
Full details and guidance can be found here;
