THE Westfield Benarty Community Fund has re-opened for applications!

Community groups that are based, or working, in the Benarty Community Council area can apply for grants between £500 and £2,000.

Since it opened in 2015 the Benarty Community Fund has distributed a whooping £56,000 in 50 grants to 23 different community organisations.

The fund is open to applications for a wide range of inspirational and creative community-led activity that helps deliver a lasting impact. It will do this by making grants to support the costs of relevant projects, services and facilities to buy equipment, cover running costs, pay for trips or a range of other uses.

The fund will support projects that address impacts of the Covid 19 pandemic. This may be for projects that meet the needs of vulnerable people that have become more acute due to the pandemic or support community organisations that have been impacted and are at risk due to loss of income.

The next closing date for applications is Thursday 10 September 2020.
