Cash on offer for voluntary groups

Voluntary groups in Erewash have just over a fortnight to apply for a cash boost.

Amounts of up to £1,500 can be applied for under the Erewash Small Grant Scheme, which is run by partners including Erewash Borough Council and Erewash Voluntary Action (CVS).

Not-for-profit organisations working in the health and social care sector can apply for funding to help them run projects which aim to improve the health of residents in the borough.

Cllr Carol Hart, the council’s lead member for community engagement, said: “We know there are many groups playing such an important role in our community and we want to make sure they are all aware that they may be eligible for a small grant to help them in their valuable work.”
