Grants on offer now

Charities, voluntary organisations and community groups across Erewash have until the end of March to apply for funding from Erewash Borough Council’s Small Grants Fund.

The Fund offers grants of up to £2,000 for projects that help improve the lives of Erewash residents and to support the vital work these groups carry out in the local community.

In addition, sports and arts organisations can apply for up to £500 towards their projects in the borough, and parish councils can also bid for a grant to run playschemes over the summer holidays.

Application forms can be downloaded from www.erewash.gov.uk. Packs can also be requested from Amie Elliott, call 0115 9072244 or email amie.elliott@erewash.gov.uk.
