United Way UK has announced that ‘Give Local’ grant applications are open for 2017. These grants of £1,000 are available to small charities working in the community.
United Way hopes to gain a better understanding of the range of issues affecting local communities and to create a clear picture as to the level of these needs, the good work being done to address them and how this work can grow to have even greater impact. This information will help them to target their own work, build long-lasting partnerships with the organisations they fund and to inform their partners about future volunteering and donation options.
“Give Local” grants are inclusive and aim to support community based, local organisations. United Way wants communities and organisations to inform them as to their needs as they relate to their priority issue areas (education, income and health); they are particularly interested in those addressing the needs of disadvantaged people. There will be 29 Give Local Grants of £1,000 each.
More detailed information can be found within the application forms – please visit www.unitedway.org.uk/grants for details.
Time is running out – the closing date for the grants is 30 June 2017.
