Good news for local groups and not-for-profit organisations in the Vale of White Horse! We have New Homes Bonus community grants available and groups can apply for a minimum of £1,000 (and up to 50 per cent of the total cost) towards projects which benefit the local community.
Vale of White Horse District Council runs the scheme on behalf of the government, but you do not have to have new homes built in your area to apply. Previous projects funded through the scheme include parenting courses in Botley, a play area in Faringdon and most recently new furniture for a group in Wantage caring for people suffering from dementia and alzheimers.
Local groups can greatly benefit from these grants and we would urge any organisations who think they could be eligible to get in touch. But don’t delay, the grant scheme closes at noon 28 October 2019.
Anyone interested in New Homes Bonus grants should see more information on the council’s website or get in contact with the Community Enablement Team on 01235 422405 / firstname.lastname@example.org / www.whitehorsedc.gov.uk/grants
