One of East Suffolk’s Community Partnerships announces new funding scheme which is set to tackle local priorities.
Launching this Friday (18 December), the Lowestoft and northern parishes Community Partnership’s Small Grants Scheme will be available to voluntary and community groups within the partnership area.
The scheme is aimed at tackling the local priorities identified by the Partnership, including social isolation, mental health and childhood obesity.
Funding will be available for projects which addresses these priorities and could include activities that can help individuals, group and families or benefit the wider community; improve mental health and well-being, helping people to live happy and healthy lives; or tackles childhood obesity in primary school children.
Cllr Paul Ashdown, Chair Community Partnership, said: “I am delighted to announce the launch of the new Small Grants Scheme, which is aimed at tackling the key priorities identified by the Partnership, including social isolation, improving mental health and well-being and addressing childhood obesity.
“We know that Covid-19 has had a big impact on our communities and we hope that this funding will enable our voluntary and community groups to continue to deliver vital services or create new services in a response to local need, which has never been needed more.”
The Grant scheme offers grants between £250 and £2,000 and applications must be submitted by 15 January 2021.
