Esh Communities is offering grants of £50 to £1,000 for projects in its operational areas that meet at least one of its core values:
- Improve the quality of life for local residents
- Support disadvantaged or vulnerable communities
- Increase prospects of becoming employed
- Promoting equality by engaging minority and hard to reach groups
Community groups, charitable organisations and social enterprises can apply.
It is not common for funding to be awarded towards organisations ‘running costs’. Applications should focus the funding on an aspect of the project and provide details in the funding breakdown of what this would be.
