improve the places and spaces that matter to communities
enable more people to fulfil their potential by working to address issues at the earliest possible stage.
It’s important to us that you involve your community in the design, development and delivery of the activities you’re planning. We feel that your project or activity will be more successful as a result.
We’re also keen to support smaller organisations and will consider your income when making a decision.
