£103,105 applied for!

Twelve funding applications totalling £103,105 were submitted in January - March 2018. The bulk of this was a bid to Children in Need for £60,000 over three years to support our Youth provisions at the Centre. We also applied for funding for core costs, our Art Group, salaries, another business course for Moms and some capital for new hand dryers and a heat curtain. We were unsuccessful with three of these applications, successful with two (£4,000) and seven are still pending.

Postcode Local Trust

In April we submitted a funding application to the Postcode Local Trust for £19,985 to take on an overgrown allotment plot at Bearwood Road Allotments and transform it into an outdoor community classroom. We feel that this would become a fantastic facility for all of the local community and the funding would enable us to have all of the relevant tools and equipment and provide various training qualifications. We will find out if the application is successful in June.
