Earlestown Community First Panel - Applications Now Open!
The Earlestown Community First Panel is established to help distribute the funds that
have been made available through the Community Development Foundation, who hold the funds for the Earlestown Ward. The Community Development Foundation has made £30 Million available to fund community projects in some of the most deprived areas of the country. People will be encouraged to give time, expertise and resources towards the projects they identify in their areas. The government will match these pound for pound, helping to stimulate local action towards meeting community needs. The programme will help communities come together to identify their strengths and local priorities in order to plan for their future and become more resilient. It will fund both new and existing community groups.
Community First Neighbourhood Matched Fund is an initiative that provides local communities with the means to address their own priorities. Communities will set up local panels in each eligible ward, and will decide upon projects for funding in their area.
It is a matched fund programme, which means that every £1 provided in funding must
be matched by a similar amount of in-kind donations (this means donations of cash,
services, free products or volunteer time).
The Earlestown Panel has a small amount of funding to spend on activtities and projects in the Earlestown Ward, applications can be found by using this link http://www.haltonsthelensvca.org.uk/community-first and the deadline is 8 June 2012.
