Voluntary groups are an important part of services provided within our town. without them, these services would cost the taxpayer so much more.
I am glad to see that the pot of money has been maintained - we all know that it is essential to support the good work of kind people.
This press release came out today:
Voluntary and community groups in Ipswich can apply for cash support as the Borough Council announces it has maintained the size of its grant pot.
Groups can apply for amounts up to £20,000 for the year through either a Community Investment Grant (this grant provides core funding for running costs or pump priming funding for an organisation to build its capacity);
or a Community Project Grant (this grant is suitable for trying something new or for one-off activity that delivers one or more of the Council’s grants priorities).
The closing date for applications is noon on Monday 10th October 2016.
The application form and guidance for applicants can be found at www.ipswich.gov.uk/content/community-cash-grants-201516
