Adactus Housing Group are inviting a second round of bids from residents in the Merseyside borough of Sefton for a share of £15,000 from their community grant scheme – the Neighbourhood Fund.
Individuals, residents, community groups, charitable organisations and social enterprises working in areas where Adactus have homes are urged to submit bids before midday on Monday 28th October.
The Neighbourhood Fund has supported over 100 projects in Sefton since its launch in 2010. Projects have included improvements to green spaces, peer support initiatives, 'grot spot' clean ups, day trips for elderly residents and sports activities for young peope.
Chris Richardson, community engagement manager at Adactus, said: "We’ve been able to support some great bids for the first round of this years £35,000 Neighbourhood Fund and can’t wait to see what ideas local residents come up with for the remaining £15,000."
Bids will be judged by a group of Sefton residents who have the final say on which projects are to be supported.
Adactus regional manager Mike Murphy said: "Cash for small to medium scale community projects is hard to come by at the moment but our Neighbourhood Fund offers local people a ray of light. Applying for the fund is simple and our staff are on hand to offer advice on projects that we are able support."
