The latest round of the Rossendale Community Fund has been launched and local organisations are invited to apply for a grant from the Fund before the deadline of 14 October.
The Rossendale Community Fund was created by Rossendale Borough Council in partnership with the Community Foundation for Lancashire to offer grants to support projects that help families, children and young people in Rossendale engage in community activities and learning.
Grants of up to £1000 are available for applications that enable families and young people aged up to the age of 25 to flourish, learn and develop skills or knowledge. This includes education, training, sports development, arts and culture activities and also play provision for younger children.
Registered charities, social enterprises and constituted community groups are eligible to apply. Applicants must have a physical base and track record of delivery within Rossendale.
Councillor Alyson Barnes, Leader of the Council said;
“Rossendale Council is very pleased to be able to support local projects through the Rossendale Community Fund. Since it was launched a year ago, 11 local organisations have been awarded grants from the Fund. There are many wonderful organisations in Rossendale working with families, children and young people, and I would encourage them to consider applying for a Rossendale Community Fund grant.”
