A funding scheme to help tackle East Suffolk Community Partnership’s key priorities has been extended.
The Carlton Colville, Kessingland, Southwold and Villages Community Partnership launched its new Small Grants Scheme in December 2020 which is available to voluntary and community groups in the partnership area.
The aim of the scheme is to address the priorities set out by the Partnership, including tackling social isolation and loneliness and improving the services available to young people.
Funding is available for projects which address these priorities and could include improving access to services, delivering activities that benefit the wider community and providing targeted projects and online sessions.
Cllr Jenny Ceresa, Chair of the Partnership, said: “This scheme is aimed at helping local groups deliver a range of projects, activities and services to our communities, which tackles the priorities set out by the Partnership and improves and enhances the lives of the residents in the area. To ensure that as many groups as possible can benefit from the scheme, we have decided to extend the application deadline and I want to encourage those eligible to apply.”
The scheme offers grants between £500 and £1,500 and the deadline for applications has now been extended to 12 February 2021.
