Could a small grant give your project a boost?
Round six of Notting Hill Housing's Aylesbury Community Grants Programme has been launched, making up to £7,500 available to local groups or individuals interested in running events or projects in the area.
There are small grants of up to £500 (Level 1) and larger grants of up to £1,500 (Level 2) on offer.
The deadline for applications is 5 pm on Tuesday 31 October 2017.
You can apply by downloading and completing the forms at the bottom of this page and returning them to Becky Williams at firstname.lastname@example.org or to Becky Williams, Notting Hill Housing, The Old Pharmacy, 2nd Floor Taplow, Thurlow Street, London, SE17 2UQ.
Please download guidance notes from this page to help you complete the form. Notting Hill Housing's Equality and Diversity Strategy is also available to download for your reference.
To qualify for a grant you will need to be able to show that:
at least 75% of those benefitting from the grant (ie participants or beneficiaries) are from the Aylesbury
the project or activity is inclusive
you have policies in place for safeguarding vulnerable adults, child protection, equal opportunities/diversity policies, or if not you’ll need to sign up to adhere to Notting Hill Housing’s policies
you have relevant DBS (formerly CRB) checks in place if you’re working with vulnerable adults, children or young people.
Successful applicants will be required to write a brief impact report, once they have delivered their project, on how they used the grant and how it benefitted the Aylesbury community. They will also be required to attend a training session giving tips on generating a sustainable income and local funding opportunities.
The Aylesbury Community Grants Programme will be open for applications twice a year. The next round will be in spring 2018.
