Finally for those of you involved in local watch or community groups etc,the following might be of interest with regards securing project funds:


Grassroots Grants

Grassroots Grants is a groundbreaking £130 million
government programme managed by the Community
Development Foundation (CDF).
A network of local funders have been selected to
deliver Grassroots Grants across England.
Grassroots Grants recognises that a small amount of
money given to a group which understands the needs
of its community can make a vast difference to the lives
of local people.
Small local community and voluntary groups and organisations,
that have an average annual income of less than £30,000 can
apply for small grants between £250 and £5,000.
Case Study:
A Neighbourhood Watch group in Hertfordshire wanted to purchase pagers and training because they met the criteria as stated and also met a clear community rural need to increase the feeling of safety of often isolated residents. The group was able to evidence the demand for this project. The chair was known as a reliable community champion who had the experience and knowledge to ensure the project was successful and would keep voluntary 'ownership' of the project so that this money was not supporting a statutory project.

If you want to find out who the local funder in your area is
visit the Grassroots Grants page of the CDF website on
www.cdf.org.uk
Community groups wishing to make an application should
contact the appropriate local funder in their area.
