Bury Council’s ‘Pitch’ Community Funding is for constituted and non-constituted groups, special interest groups and residents who are undertaking projects that will contribute to improving the health and well being of local people within their community.
Projects must be delivered in the area identified for local residents and should be community led and demonstrate that they help people to help themselves and others live a good life. The grant must be spent within 6 months at the very latest but the activities can continue afterwards.
Who can apply?
Groups do not need to be constituted, but will need their own group account or nominate a recognised organisation e.g. (Church, Community Centre, School) to act as a banker.
If you have an idea for a project you will be asked to complete an application form with all the relevant information about your project, including how it will benefit the health & well being of local people. If applicable you will then be asked to come and present your project idea to members of the local community at the relevant ‘Pitch event’ (see below).
en the opportunity to vote through One Community for their favourite projects ahead of the public Pitch event.
Applicants can apply for up to a maximum of £1,500.
When does the funding run?
The Pitch funding runs twice each year, one of which taking part around February/March and the other later in the year around September time, dates will be announced here on the community grants funding page.
The date of the September 2019 Prestwich event is Sunday 1 September 2019 11.00 for 11.30am.Leave a comment
