Local organisations are invited to apply for a grant of up to £750 from the Fund before the deadline of February 22nd.
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 engage in community activities and learning.
Grants of up to £750 are available and applications should show how they help families and young people 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.
Local 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.
Alyson Barnes, Leader of the Council, said:
The Council values the many services that local organisations provide for families, children and young people and we are very pleased to be able to continue to support local projects through the Rossendale Community Fund.”
