Grant aid is just grand for community groups

Voluntary and community groups are being urged to stake a claim for up to £5,000 of funding to help boost their work.
Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council has a pot of £100,000 to give out, as part of its Voluntary Grants Fund scheme.
And organisations working in neighbourhoods throughout the area can now submit applications to the authority to try to secure the grant aid.
Grants are available in two categories – between £250 and £1,000, and £1,000 and £5,000.
The fund was established to underline the Council’s support for voluntary and community groups working to support its priorities of creating a thriving local economy; healthier and longer lives; ensuring people feel protected and safe; encouraging children and young people to aspire and achieve; and empowering communities.
A panel of council representatives will assess the applications, before making decisions.
Application forms and guidelines are available via the home page of the Council’s website at www.redcar-cleveland.gov.uk
Alternatively, contact Gemma Bennison on (01287) 612524 or e-mail gemma.bennison@redcar-cleveland.gov.uk
Councillor Lynn Pallister, Cabinet Member for Housing and Neighbourhood Renewal, said: “Voluntary and community organisations play an absolutely vital role in our borough and this scheme offers a great opportunity for them to maintain and enhance their work.”
The closing date for applications is Friday, July 29, at 5pm.
