Do you have good ideas for projects that would help to make your community stronger and your neighbourhood nicer? The new Neighbourhoods Fund may be able to help.
The community councils have £542,000 to spend on community led projects, which encourage people from different backgrounds to work together, and promote respect and consideration, and give communities the opportunity to improve their local area.
Have a look at the information sheet to find out more, including how much you could apply for and what sort of projects will be considered.
Please also refer to the guidance notes to help you complete the application form.
To apply for funding you can go directly to the Neighbourhoods Fund online application form. However, we advise that you first register with My Southwark when prompted, as this will allow you to complete, view, save, retrieve and print your application. Also you can access many other useful online applications forms, including the community councils’ online forums.
The closing date is noon, Monday 16 February 2015. For more information on how to apply for the Neighbourhoods fund please contact Pauline Bonner Pauline.firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.southwark.gov.uk/communitycouncils
