Further funding boost for Partnership

The Melton, Woodbridge and Deben Peninsula Community Partnership is launching a third round of its Small Grant Scheme which offers funding to voluntary and community groups within the Partnership. Applications will open next week. 

The Youth Engagement Grant Scheme offers funding to projects aimed at improving the opportunities and services available to young people. This could include providing new activities centred around life skills, fun or leisure or improving or creating new outdoor spaces or play equipment. 

The Village Hubs Grant Scheme offers funding to projects aimed at creating or improving village hubs to the benefit of the wider community. This could include assistance in making premises in the area fit for use as a community hub or supporting mobile services in bringing provisions to a village. 

Cllr James Mallinder, Chair of the Partnership, said: “We are really pleased to launch the third round of our Small Grant Scheme to local community and voluntary groups, making sure support is provided exactly where needed. The scheme is aimed at helping these local groups deliver a ranger of projects, activities and services to support our young people and local communities to improve and enhance the lives of local residents.” 

The schemes, which will be open for applications from 1 November until 1 January 2022, will offer grants between £250 and £2,500.
