The Community First fund is a government funded initiative that will run for four years, until March 2015. The programme will help communities come together to identify their strengths and local priorities in order to plan for their future and become more resilient.
Boston Castle is one of the Wards in Rotherham South that has been identified to receive funding of £84,775 over four years. Community First is a match funded programme, which means that every £1 provided in funding must be matched by a similar amount of in-kind donations (this means donations of cash, services, free products or volunteer time).
