Cash for your Community!

goldLeicestershire County Council has made available £320,000 per year for local communities to invest in local improvement of their choice. The funding is available through the 25 Community Forums.

This Community Forum Budget is not a regular grant fund, because local residents are involved in all aspects of the process and they will be making the decision which projects should receive a share of the funds.

Community groups can put forward project ideas for which they are seeking funding. All those project proposals are then made available on the forum’s website so residents can view and comment on them. The community groups and other local residents then come together for a Decision Night to discuss the projects and vote for their favourites.

All proposals will benefit from advice by a panel of experts, including advice on further sources of funding.

Don’t miss out! Dates for your diaries:
Submit a Project Proposal: 8th May
View and Comment:9th May – 5th June
Register your interest to attend: 9th May – 29th May
Decision Night: 5th June
