A grant scheme which helps local voluntary groups and charitable organisations to fund projects and activities for Wyre Forest residents is now open for applications.

The Wyre Forest District Council Community Grant Scheme awards grants from £250 to £500. Charitable organisations, clubs and societies, companies with a community interest parish and town councils are among the types of organisations who may apply.

The grants are available to improve services and facilities and support activities for the local community. The council will also look to support schemes which encourage local action to improve quality of life. Youth facilities, environmental improvements, workshops for people with dementia and play equipment are just a few of the sorts of projects which could receive funding.

Cllr Helen Dyke, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture, Leisure and Community Protection said:

“If you are looking for funding for a one off scheme or event or maybe need one off support for an ongoing initiative the Community Grant Scheme could help. We have a network of thriving and confident communities and the aim of the scheme is to support them. Any project which receives funding must benefit Wyre Forest residents. This year we’re especially welcoming applications that benefit the lives of young people and improve their future opportunities.”

The Community Grant Scheme is supporting the council’s approach to localism. This is how the council is reducing costs and working to safeguard community services and facilities.

Details of how to apply for a grant are available at www.wyreforestdc.gov.uk/communitygrants.

Anyone wishing to discuss a grant application should contact community safety and partnerships officer Kathryn Underhill at kathryn.underhill@wyreforestdc.gov.uk or 01562 732956.
