Ealing Council to award small grants to voluntary organisationsTue 15 Jun 2021
The council is keen to receive grant applications from hard to reach groups in our community, and has made support available for the application process.
The small grants programme will make awards of up to £5,000 to not-for-profit organisations who are working to support Ealing residents.
The council is awarding £100,000 in small grants for this financial year 2021-22, and is especially keen to support projects which have a mental health or well-being focus in the local community and neighbourhood.
The focus will be on supporting projects which will benefit the local community, examples of which might include projects such as arts and cultural events and activities, intergenerational projects, health and self-care support groups, exercise and healthy walks, horticultural, environmental projects and or initiatives to tackle digital exclusion.
Councillor Jasbir Anand, lead cabinet member for Thriving communities said: "We are keen to receive applications from hard to reach groups in our community that have ideas and initiatives for projects that will transform local people’s lives."
"The successful projects that will be funded will be local, led by local people and organisations, meeting the needs of local people to improve lives, health and wellbeing in our neighbourhoods."
"If you are a community or voluntary group and you have a project idea you would like to develop, or if you need advice on the application process, please get in touch. We want to hear from you."
The closing date for all applications is Monday, 19th July 2021 at 12 noon.
Full details and an application form are available on the Ealing Council website.
