Funding available for community groups

Wednesday, 5 July 2017
Community groups looking for funding have been invited to apply for grants from the DDC Community Grants Scheme 2017-2018 - the closing date for applications is Friday 18 August 2017.

DDC is offering grant funding to community groups that can show benefit to the local area, and groups are invited to apply for individual grants from £100 up to £1,000.

Last year, more than £22,000 was allocated to 29 different community groups across the district, including the Deal Community Sports Football Club, Guston Village Hall Trust, Skillnet Group Community Interest Company (CIC), Dover Castle Archers, and the Sandwich Concert Band.

Cllr Keith Morris, DDC Cabinet Member for Skills, Training, Tourism, Voluntary Services and Community Safety said: "Community groups play a vital role in the life of the district, and we are delighted to be able to support them with the DDC Community Grants.  We hope as many groups as possible apply over the summer."

Community groups can apply online on the DDC website - for more details see the Neighbourhood Forum pages or contact Hannah Batley on (01304) 872274 or email
