Ashfield Community Fund 2021 now open for applications!

Are you a small community group who delivers a project in Ashfield? The Ashfield Community Fund is back to support you!

Now open for applications, grants are once again available from £500 up to £1,000.

A massive £20,000 was awarded to community groups across Ashfield last year as part of the Ashfield Community Fund.

An additional £100k has been distributed to 45 groups and organisations by the Council to help support residents in need during the pandemic. This includes grants to local food banks, providing a buddy service to help vulnerable residents with shopping and medication delivery as well as offering advice to those suffering financially due to Covid-19.

In partnership with the Nottinghamshire Community Foundation, Ashfield District Council is now offering a further £10,000 of community grants and wants to hear from eligible Ashfield groups. 

The Council is committed to supporting the voluntary sector and Cllr Rachel Madden, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Health and Wellbeing is looking forward to supporting even more projects in the community.

Cllr Madden said: “The work these groups do for our community is vital – I don’t quite know where we would be without them. The last year and a half has been tough so we’re delighted to be helping as many groups as we can.

“The Ashfield Community Fund is a great chance for groups to get the funding they so desperately need for projects that will benefit our communities.”

Nottinghamshire Community Foundation opened the fund on 1 September 2021 and the closing date is 31 October 2021.
