Small grants to give local community organisations a helping hand

Published: Monday, 03 July 2017

Local not-for-profit organisations are being offered a helping hand by the Borough Council’s Small Grant Fund, which opens for applicants today.

The fund aims to help small Northampton based voluntary and community organisations to deliver local projects or activities, such as community events, training and equipment.

Organisations can apply for small grants of up to £3,000, to help them, to deliver positive outcomes for the community across the Borough

Cllr Anna King, the Council’s Cabinet member for Community engagement and safety, said: “Even the smallest venture can help to improve the lives of people living in Northampton and our Small Grants Fund can provide the support groups might need to achieve their goals and deliver exciting community services and activities.

“Last year the fund helped 15 small organisations and we look forward to welcoming more applications this year.”
