Lottery Cash on Offer in South Warwickshire

Cash is up for grabs across South Warwickshire under a new lottery scheme to help fund projects that involve people in the local community.

The main aim of Awards for All is to fund projects which involve people in their local community, bringing them together to take part in and enjoy a wide range of arts, sports, heritage, charitable and other community activities.

The programme is supported by the National Lottery Charities Board, the Heritage Lottery Fund, Sport England and the Arts Council of England.

People running schemes that need financial help between £500 and £5,000 are encouraged to apply to Stratford District Council, which is coordinating bids in its area.

A council spokesman said:

“This programme aims to make a real difference to smaller groups and strengthen community activity. The emphasis is on projects where a small sum of money can make a big impact.

“Awards for All grants can be used for projects such as putting on an event or activity, providing training courses, setting up a pilot project, running a conference or seminar, special repairs or conservation work, start up costs, publicity materials, professional fees, research costs, equipment and materials, transport costs and volunteer expenses.”

Last time the project ran, some £163,600 was shared between 60 community groups.

For more information on Awards for All, to discuss funding opportunities for community groups, contact Lucy Grove, grants & strategy officer, at Stratford-on-Avon District Council on 01789 260694.
