North Solihull Partnership Small Grants Programme – November 2011

A pot of £10,000 will be distributed across North Solihull in the form of small grants, from which community groups are able to apply for up to £500 for local, community led activities.

These should focus on the following activity areas:

  • Sports
  • Recreation
  • Leisure
  • Improve peoples opportunities
  • Benefit the wider community
  • Extend access and participation

Organisations who were previously successful can apply again, although applications from groups who have not been awarded a grant before will be prioritised.

Groups need to be constituted or have a set of rules, but don't necessarily need a bank account, as another organisation, who has a bank account, can hold the funding on your behalf.

The Small Grants Scheme Application Form and Guidelines are attached. Applications are now being accepted, the deadline for submissions is midday 4th January 2012.

Please circulate this message to any other groups you may know or work with.

If you have any queries or require further information please do not hesitate to contact - Alex Heath tel: 0121 704 6529 or e-mail: aheath@solihull.gov.uk.
