Funding available for small charities groups
Funding Spotlight: Hackney Council's Grant Programme - promoting social inclusion, personal resilience and community cohesion
Does your small charity need support to make a difference in Hackney? If so, Hackney Council's grant programme aims to help local voluntary or community organisations provide projects for Hackney residents - such as youth activity schemes, health advice, employment advice and safety improvements.
These grants are between £1,000 and £5,000 for projects being delivered in 2017/18 that contribute to one or both of the two Hackney Grants Programme Priorities:
1. To promote social inclusion, encourage independence and develop personal resilience
2. To build positive relations between different groups and communities that will maintain the high levels of community cohesion.
Deadline: The closing date for applications is Wednesday 17 May, at 12 noon.
Community Chest Grants
These are grants of up to £1,000 for projects and events which contribute to the Council's objective to foster good relations by building a strong sense of community, neighbourliness and pride. The projects or events should be either short term or one off activities rather than long-term activities or service provision.
Deadline: The closing date for applications is Wednesday 10 May, at 12 noon.
