I have been made aware of a small pot of funding, currently available, that local neighbourhood watch groups could access, if successful, with an easy to complete funding application form.
Please find details below –
Love Where You Live Fund
The Love Where You Live Fund is intended to encourage people to promote the concept of being good neighbours.
It is to build capacity within local communities and help to reduce social isolation and loneliness.
A small pot of funding is available to help local communities to identify areas of need, provide support, training, arrange activities and events.
The application process has been made really easy and simple.
Contact Jane Mansfield, Board member at NEL VCSE Alliance for a discussion about what you’d like to use the fund for.
You’ll get sent a small application form, that Jane will even come out and complete with you if you’d like her to.
The application goes to a panel of local community volunteers monthly and decisions are pretty quick.
The contact number for any enquiries or help with form filling is –
Remember, you must already have a local area NHW project in mind for the funding request to be assessed.
