Communities in need are set to benefit from Greggs Foundation funding aimed at health and social welfare issues in England, Scotland and Wales.
The Greggs Foundation’s Community Projects Fund is inviting applications for grants of up to £2,000 to not-for-profit organisations across Great Britain. Funding will support projects or equipment for those in need at the heart of local communities.
Projects can support a variety of people:
- Disabled or suffering chronic illness.
- Living in poverty.
- Voluntary carers.
- Isolated older people.
- Other demonstrable significant need.
Eligible projects should also be able to demonstrate that they have achieved at least one of the following Key Performance Targets for their beneficiaries:
- Decreased social isolation.
- Improved health and wellbeing.
- Improved resilience/coping mechanisms.
- Improved life skills.
- Improved opportunities.
The Local Community Projects Fund is administered by seven charity committees throughout Great Britain. Please note that the programme is ‘highly over-subscribed’ and there is ‘huge competition’ for the grants available.
The next deadline for applications is 9 March 2018.
