Up to £1,000 is available to organisations doing great work to benefit Stafford Borough residents.

The Stafford Borough Council Small Grants scheme is open to groups and volunteers in the area who aim to make life better for residents. Examples include Covid-19 projects that are helping support people in the community.

The grants of between £100 and £1,000 can be used to pay for a range of costs such as new equipment, training, or go towards the running of an event.

The fund is administered by the Community Foundation for Staffordshire – an independent charity whose aim is to strengthen local communities across the county.

The closing dates for applications is 1 June 2021 and you can find out more, and apply, from Stafford Borough Council Small Grants – The Community Foundation for Staffordshire

Among the groups that can apply are community and voluntary groups, registered charities and social enterprises.

Previous recipients of the grants include Rising Brook Community Project in Stafford – to improve the children’s area of the library, Barlaston Community Group for a scheme to combat loneliness, and the Stafford branch of Parkinson’s UK – to set up exercise classes to help those with the neurological condition.

Dr Tracy Redpath, Corporate Business and Partnerships Manager at the borough council, urged local groups not to miss out on the opportunity of additional funds.

She said: “We are looking for projects that benefit local residents, bring about a lasting benefit to the wider community or help increase an organisations sustainability.

“The money can also be available to those running Covid-19 specific projects that support residents and communities who have been affected by the pandemic.”
