Grants Available in Abbey for Community Projects

Community First Grants are now open for applications for residents or organisations running activities in Abbey Ward.
This year, applications will be considered on a rolling basis, and the longest you should have to wait for a response is two months.

The priorities for this year are:
Improving anti-social behaviour
Improving the local environment
Improving community cohesion

The most important thing to remember with applications this year is that ALL MONEY MUST BE SPENT by March 2015! This doesn’t allow a lot of time, so these grants are for a quick turn-around for projects that can spend the money in a short space of time.

We know it’s a bit of a challenge, but if you’re unsure what you can do in this short amount of time, get in touch with to chat through your idea.

Abbey covers the town centre, as far west as Prospect Street, north to the Thames, east to Cumberland Road and south to London Road.

Applications can be for sums of £250 – £2500.

Don’t delay, apply today!
