Grants up for grabs in Brierley Hill
8:00am Monday 21st October 2013 in News
GRANTS of up to £1,000 are available for community projects in Brierley Hill that will help improve the lives of local residents.
The Brierley Hill branch of Community First, a nationwide government scheme aimed at supporting volunteers and social enterprise to make a difference in their community, will give a share of £4,000 to various groups to help their ideas become a reality.
Tim Sunter, of Brierley Hill Community First, said: “We are looking for community and voluntary groups to come up with ideas of how they could spend between £750 and £1,000 to improve the lives of local residents. We’re really keen to reach out to new groups and involve more people in our work.”
A public meeting will be held at St Michael’s Church, Bell Street South on November 19, where applicants will put forward their case to local residents, who will then vote on what projects they believe deserve financial support.
An advice session for potential applicants will be held tomorrow (Tuesday October 22) at St Michael's Church, Bell Street South from 5.30pm to 7pm.
