September deadline for community grant applications

 

The deadline is looming for community groups, charities and young people in the county to apply for funding from a much valued community grant scheme.

Grants of up to £5,000 are available from Northumberland County Council to help deliver activities that benefit residents and communities.

There is also a £200 grant called ‘Help for You’ available to assist under 18s in pursuing a particular ambition - whether it be sporting, musical or academic.

To be considered in the next round of funding, applications will need to be submitted by  September 28, 2018.

Northumberland County Councillor, Nick Oliver, cabinet member with responsibility for corporate resources said:

“The fund aims to provide support to the many valued local groups and voluntary organisations that are making a real difference in every corner of the county. ”

You can apply for the fund online or by downloading the form from  www.northumberland.gov.uk. If you have any queries, please  email communitychest@northumberland.gov.uk
