Community groups can apply for small grants of up to £200 for projects that benefit the residents of Thurcroft. To be funded, your proposed project needs to support one of the three themes in the Thurcroft Big Local Plan —Community Pride, Regeneration or Children and Young People. Applications are open to all but anyone under 16 will need an adult guarantor to support their project.
Thurcroft Big Local Partnership has worked with residents and put together a plan for the village to spend £1million over the next ten years to make Thurcroft a “place where people want to bring their children up in the future.” These small grants aim to support smaller projects around the village. The Partnership would particularly welcome new, interesting and exciting projects that benefit Thurcroft residents.
This is the tenth round of small grants. To apply, all you need to do is complete a simple form describing your project and how it will benefit Thurcroft residents. Application forms are available from and can be returned to the Thurcroft Hub, New Orchard Lane, Thurcroft S66 9AE or email your completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5.00pm on Friday 2nd March. Application forms can be downloaded from the Big Local website at www.www.thurcroftbiglocal.org.uk.
