“Community First” funding is to provide an extra £203,460 for voluntary groups in Burngreave over the next 4 years.
The money is available to wards all over the country if they suffer from serious levels of deprivation. Burngreave is set to receive the second highest amount in the country, showing the very high levels of poverty in the area.
A panel is being set up to take applications from voluntary groups in the near future. Groups can apply for up to £2,500 if they can raise this amount through match funding, which can include volunteers’ time.
At present, the panel is being managed by the Community Assembly and application forms are available on the Community Assembly Blog or you can ring them on 203 7562.
