If you have a project that could improve the look and feel of council housing estates or improve quality of life for council tenants, Reading Borough Council wants to hear from you. Your Community Your Cash gives you the power to bid for up to £6,000 of Decent Neighbourhood Funding. This year, 15 bids around Reading have so far been awarded up to £6,000 to benefit Council estates or the tenants and the families living there, but there is still funding available.
In the past few years local communities have voted to give funding to a wide range of projects including an art group, equipment to set up a play barn for toddlers, and a radio station.
You can download a bidding form at www.reading.gov.uk/ycyc or ask for a form from the Neighbourhood Initiatives Team using the contact details below. Who are also happy to talk through your ideas in more detail, so please also contact the Neighbourhood Initiatives Team if you would like some advice and support in bidding, or visit the website above. The deadline for applications is February 2016.
