The National Churches Trust – Community Grants Programme (UK) (Deadline: 29th November 2016)
The National Churches Trust has announced that the next closing date for applications is the 29th November 2016.
The Community Grants Programme is for grants of between £5,000 and £20,000 for projects which introduce facilities to enable increased community use of places of worship. Projects must have an estimated cost of at least £25,000 (including VAT and fees) to qualify. For example, St Michael’s church in the centre of West Bromwich received a grant of £10,000 towards the cost of a new kitchen extension, the provision of accessible toilet facilities, storage provision, general refurbishment and re-modelling of the lobby and entrance, in order to make it more accessible and usable for the local community. Community applicants can also be considered for a National Churches Trust Micro-Grant in Partnership with the Cinnamon Network. There are additional £2,000 micro-grants available to successful applicants to set up a Cinnamon Network Recognised Project that meets the needs of local people.
The micro-grants allow churches to set up social action projects such as CAP Money Courses, Make Lunch and Parish Nursing. Successful churches will also be able to access the support and training provided by Cinnamon Network’s regional Advisers and Trainers.
