Quick Wins Funding


THE FIRST ROUND OF QUICK WINS GRANTS IS NOW CLOSED.

PLEASE LOOK OUT FOR MORE OPPORTUNITIES IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

**********************************************************************************************************

Grants of upto £500 are available to Community Groups and Organisations currently working in Fishwick and St Matthew’s. Smaller Grants are also available for individuals who have support from a recognised partner organisation (call for more info). The purpose of this funding is to enable positive community activities that are of obvious benefit to the area.

If you would like to talk about these Grants in more detail or would like to request a paper copy of the form please contact Danny on 07960 361429 or email danny@friendsoffishwickandstmatthews.org.uk (Support is also available to help you complete your application)

This funding forms part of the Big Local initiative which will bring a £1Million investment into Fishwick & St Matthew’s. In order to access this funding a plan must be put forward, this plan must be based on the views of the people who live in the area and must reflect value for money as well as longevity. It is very important therefore that everyone has a say.

We would like Community Groups and Organisations to take part in the consultation process and therefore we are requesting that all groups who are awarded funding will assist us in the consultation for the Big Local Plan, more information about this can be found below:

The Funded Activity should involve as many people as possible and should be of obvious benefit.  Please note we will not fund: Individuals without support from a recognised partner organisation, religious or political projects, projects with no obvious community benefit, activity that maybe in breach standard policy such as equal opportunities, activity that is delivered outside of Fishwick / St Matthew’s (Inner East Preston) or any project we feel does not meet the criteria of this grant process. Friendsof Fishwick and St Matthew’s reserve the right to refuse applications for funding without reason. All rights reserved. For more information on what we can and cannot fund please contact us.
