Small grants for community groups

Calderdale Council’s Small Grants scheme gives away small grants of up to £3,000 to voluntary and community groups all over Calderdale.  This year we are giving away £70,000 to a range of community initiatives and voluntary sector projects.

These grants are awarded through a Small Grants Panel, made up of Calderdale Councillors and representatives from voluntary groups, community groups and groups which represent communities of interest.

These voluntary and community sector representatives are appointed for two years, and over the coming weeks we will be writing to all voluntary and community groups, whose postal addresses are registered on the VAC database, to invite nominations for representatives to serve on the Community Grants Panel from April 2012 to March 2014.  Each organisation can nominate one person as a representative.

If you have any queries relating to this please do not hesitate to contact Sarah J Barker at Grants@calderdale.gov.uk or on 01422 393272
