Communities and Families Fund Now Open
21st February 2013
The Big Lottery Fund has recently launched a new programme in conjunction with the Scottish Government - the Communities and Families fund. This joint fund offers small grants (of between £250 and £10,000) to support projects working with young children (pre-birth to 8 years) and their parents.
We are trying to give the programme a big push and make as many groups and organisations aware of it as possible. The types of groups we are trying to target are those that normally would not qualify for larger funding from the Big Lottery Fund due to their size. Itís very much about reaching groups at a grassroots level.
With your help we're hoping to make as many local groups as possible in your constituency aware of the fund and encourage them to apply for the available grants. Please click on the web link below which should give you a better understanding of the fund and the types of groups that can apply.
