North East Area Ward Pots 2017/18

26 Jul

I am pleased to announce the 2017/18 North East Area Ward Pots are now open for applications.

All wards in the North East area (Burngreave, Firth Park, Shiregreen and Brightside, Southey) are inviting applications for funding. All applications must show they are addressing at least one of the ward priorities. Groups can apply for grants of £250 to £1000.

To find out which ward you are in follow this link and use the postcode search tool.

Rather than one deadline, councillors in each ward have decided they will consider applications throughout the year.

Please help us to publicise this grant round by forwarding this information on to other organisations and community groups in the North East area.

The forms and supporting information can be found by following these links:

  • Encouraging and supporting activities and initiatives that help deal with anti-social behaviour hot-spots.

 

Priority 4: Communicating and engaging with the local community.

Local councillors will do this by:
