Final year for funding for Jarrow groups through Big Local Community Grant Scheme
Eligible groups and individuals are being encouraged to access funding via Big Local Central Jarrow as it is the last year for funding through the Big Local Community Grant Scheme.
Big Local is an opportunity for residents in 150 areas around England to use at least £1m to make a massive and lasting positive difference to their communities. It’s about bringing together all the local talent, ambitions, skills and energy from individuals, groups and organisations who want to make their area an even better place to live.
It is ran by a Local Trust which is an independent organisation working with £200m from the Big Lottery Fund and a range of partners providing expert advice and support to the local community.
Big Local Central Jarrow is part of Phase 2 of the Big Local initiative announced on the 29, February 2012 and is now in the final year for groups and individuals to apply for grants through the scheme.
The two grants available are:
*Small Community Grants to continue to support the grassroots organisations that benefit the residents of central Jarrow directly. You can apply for up to £300
*Legacy Grants - these are for new initiatives or for activity we have not funded before. We will be looking for activity that will continue beyond the Big Local project and be part of our legacy. In particular activity that will support, community, environment, well being, children and young people, the cost of living crisis and digital inclusion. Up to £1000 will be available.
