27 June 2016Community Chest Scheme - Grants available
The County Council has a ‘Community Chest’ scheme which gives community groups and voluntary organisations across Northumberland a chance to bid for funding.
The scheme is open to any voluntary/community or not-for-profit group or organisation (to include charities) based in or predominantly serving Northumberland which is properly constituted with a bank account that has at least two signatories.
Organisations can apply for up to £10,000 and there is no minimum amount. All applications are considered on a rolling basis, therefore there are no deadlines for submitting application forms and each application is submitted on a simple standardised application form.
Individuals, Parish and Town Councils and schools are not eligible to apply and the majority of people benefiting from the proposal should be from Northumberland – with particular emphasis on the relevant Area.
Application forms are available from Northumberland County Council website
