Blackpool Funding opportunities available for projects

Up to £10,000 could be available to local organisations and community groups in Blackpool.

Blackpool Coastal Housing’s Tenant’s Project Fund provides grants to help local projects that improve lives for local BCH tenants, residents and leaseholders.

Previous beneficiaries include the new Memory Café for older people at Ibbison Court Community Centre, as well as the Blackpool Life Charity, who received £500 in funding to provide ‘baby bags’ full of essential items such as nappies, baby grow and wipes, to new and expectant mothers.

In total, around 26 projects have been supported by the fund to help local residents.

This year, Blackpool Coastal Housing is looking for more worthy causes to support.

John Donnellon, Chief Executive of Blackpool Coastal Housing, said: “We are always keen to support projects which improve the lives of our tenants, residents and leaseholders.

“Over the years, we have supported some extremely worthy projects, which help build closer communities, promote healthy lifestyles and improve opportunities for children – to name just a few.

“It doesn’t matter whether your project is big or small – we will support you throughout the process. The best way to get started is to come to our session on Monday and find out all about the application process.”

Applications for large projects (between £500 and £10,000) need to be submitted by Friday 28 August 2015, while small grants (£500 and under) can be submitted throughout the year.
