Brinsworth and Catcliffe Community Chest

We allocated £8300 to Community Chest capital projects last year to support community activity and resources within the Brinsworth and Catcliffe Ward.

We are delighted to launch the next round of Community chest funding for 2020/21 and look forward to hearing from community groups and organisations with new and exciting projects to deliver within the Ward.

They would like to invite community groups and organisations within their ward to bid into the Community Chest for Capital projects between £500 to £2000.

Your application must be aligned to the Ward Plan priorities and fund activities or services that support activity to tackle these.

All projects submitted must be delivered and allocations spent by 31st March 2021.

Capital Funding can be used to purchase pieces of equipment and items of fixed assets (or improvements to them) that will be of use or benefit for more than one financial year, e.g. buildings, street furniture, fixtures & fittings, computer equipment, etc.
