Grants for Groups – Wessex Water: 2 weeks left…..

27th January 2020, 9:15am | By Karen Hobbs |

Wiltshire Community Foundation are one of four Community Foundations partnering with Wessex Water to offer financial support to grassroots groups that bring people together across their region.

Grants of up to £1,500 are available to organisations that build cohesion in communities, with priority given to smaller groups that work in areas of financial deprivation or rural isolation and/or work to raise awareness of drinking water for healthy living or saving water.

The fund is open for applications on 6 Jan 2020 and the deadline for applications is 14 February 2020.

Kirsty Scarlett, Wessex Water’s Head of Community Engagement, said: “We want to make sure that we support our communities to help those who need it most. We’re delighted to be working in partnership with the four Community Foundations across our region who are all well placed to understand and address needs through making grants in their local areas.

“The fund will prioritise small, grassroots charities and community organisations over larger ones that perhaps have a higher profile.”

Groups in Wiltshire wishing to find out more or apply for funding should visit either www.wessexwater.co.uk/community/apply-for-funding or www.wiltshirecf.org.uk.
