Overview of Recommendation Process

Applications fitting criteria will be considered at a Neighbourhood Network meeting and recommendations made to Locality Manager.

The total annual budget for grants is £37,565, and the Panel considers all applications that meet the funding criteria until the fund for that year has been fully allocated. As a result, the Panel will recommend to fully fund the project, offer partial funding, or decline to recommend an award.

2021-22 Update – projects tackling Social Isolation will be particularly welcomed.
