Wirral West Constituency Committee has again made available £50,000 for local organisations to bid for funding for local projects that will positively impact on the area through its Community Fund grants programme.
The Wirral West Constituency Team is inviting bids for projects that will improve quality of life in *Wirral West and positively impact on local people and places. Up to £10,000 is available per ward, with a maximum grant for each project of £1,000. Groups may apply for up to two grants of £1,000, but must ensure these are for different projects. Umbrella groups can apply for additional grants but must discuss with the Constituency Team first.
To be eligible for a grant you must be applying on behalf of one of the organisations or groups below and based in Wirral West:
-Community / Voluntary Group
The Community Fund cannot be used for:
-Core staff salaries or core administrative costs;
-Religious worship – applications are welcomed from religious or faith groups for projects that are designed to benefit the wider community. However, projects that are deemed to promote a particular religion are excluded;
-Party political activity, i.e. fundraising, campaigning or any other activity associated with any political party.
Eligible projects will be asked to take part in a funding/networking event at Hilbre High School on Thursday 13th October at 4.45-8.30pm (groups will be required to attend for a minimum of 1 hour in this time period) where local people will be asked to have their say on whether the project should receive the requested grant.
The closing date for applications is Thursday 8th September 2016, 12 noon.
I have included a link to the website where you will find the documents you will need including a supplier form – both forms must be completed and returned along with any supporting documents preferably via email to: [email protected] or to Wirral West Constituency Team, c/o West Kirby Library, Grange Road, West Kirby, Wirral CH48 4HZ. I have also attached all documents above for ease. If you have any questions please do contact me on 0151 691 8650 or via email.
