The latest round of funding from Helena is open to applications. The fund can be used to help people create, plan, manage and organise their own projects – projects that have a lasting impact on people’s lives and the places in which they live.
They consulted with residents at listening days to highlight the priorities which they felt were most appropriate.
The funds priority is to help communities tackle issues which they are facing – examples of the type of project, could be
- A project showing families who are struggling to afford and cook healthy food how to eat better for less on a budget
- An initiative using computers to help isolated older people to stay in touch with friends and relatives
How much can I apply for?
Grants of up to £500 are available, however the fund does not necessarily have to meet the full cost of your project. Applications closing date for the latest round is 28th February 2018.
