Groups go for grants

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

COM­MU­NITY groups are be­ing in­vited to ap­ply for a share of grant money to help them to run suc­cess­fully.

South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil is invit­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for a pot of fund­ing worth more than £22,000, de­signed to support com­mu­nity groups and­vol­un­tary­or­gan­i­sa­tions in the area.

The sub­scrip­tions and do­na­tions grant is meant to help not for profit groups with their run­ning costs so that they can con­tinue to pro­vide their ser­vices and ac­tiv­i­ties to the com­mu­nity.

Grants will not be given to ap­pli­cants who wish to use the fund­ing to pur­chase equip­ment or to put on one-off events and are in­stead de­signed to help the groups im­prove the ser­vice they are of­fer­ing.

Ap­pli­cants do not have to live in the dis­trict, but their ser­vices must ben­e­fit peo­ple liv­ing in the South Bucks area.

Ben­e­fi­cia­ries from last year’s scheme in­clude Head­way South Bucks, Bucks Vi­sion, Chiltern Cit­i­zens’ Ad­vice Bureau, Ca­reers Spring­board, and Berk­shire East and South Bucks Women’s Aid.

The clos­ing date for ap­pli­ca­tions is Jan­uary 27 at 5pm, and ap­pli­ca­tion forms can be down­loaded from the South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil web­site.

Peo­ple can also re­quest a pa­per copy of a form by call­ing 01895 837 379 or email­ing com­mu­nity@ south­bucks.gov.uk.
