The Foundation has been established to provide grant funding and practical ‘in kind’ support with a value of up to £5,000 to a wide range of community schemes. Projects could include creating or renovating public spaces such as parks or gardens, running sports tournaments or supporting cultural or community events.
Along with financial support, GLL staff are also offering practical support and consultancy to projects, while Spacehive provides a platform for local schemes to build support and fundraise from within their own community.
