Funding will be available to local people groups and organisations who want to stand up to poverty and do something positive in our local communities. Grants from between £100 and £10,000 or up £20,000, in certain circumstances, are available. The closing date for you to submit your project proposal is midnight on Friday 11 January 2019.  Please copy the link below to find more information
