Have your say

VOLUNTARY organisations and community groups can apply for grants of up to £1,000.

East Hampshire District Council’s community forums can grant funding to support one-off projects that help tackle local issues and demonstrate a clear benefit to the area’s residents.

Grants will cover up to 50 per cent of the project’s costs, subject to a small number of criteria being met.

Past funding has been spent on supporting Olympic and Jubilee activities as well as helping groups buy new equipment or make changes to community spaces.

For more information or to discuss your project with a community project worker, call 01730 234393 or email support.team@easthants.gov.uk.
