Over the last 12 months our Community Fund has awarded over £12,000 to local groups and organisations delivering activities that benefit the communities of Preston. Our tenant panel has recently reviewed the funding criteria and have made some changes to ensure that it is accessible to all.
The fund is now open to all constituted groups to apply for up to £1,000 and non-constituted groups to apply for up to £500 for their projects and activities.
In response to the current crisis we have launched a COVID-19 fund element to our Community Fund - this allows groups to apply for funding up to £500 for projects which directly respond to the current crisis. We aim to have a decision on all applications to this fund within 5 working days.
