Active Communities Grant Scheme
Central Bedfordshire Council has launched this scheme which offers charities, not-for-profit organisations, voluntary and community groups, housing associations, town and parish councils and social enterprises grants of up to £5,000.
Eligible projects must be working with people across Central Bedfordshire to help residents become more physically and socially active. Applicants will need to be able to explain how their idea or project will make a difference and deliver positive community benefit to one or more of the following priority sections of the Central Bedfordshire population:
- Young people aged 16-34
- Over 75s
- Disabled people and people with long-term health conditions
- Culturally diverse communities
- Those living in areas of higher deprivation
The grant fund will operate in bidding rounds.
The current bidding round has closed but further rounds will be detailed on their website here, as well as in email bulletins and via partner organisations.
