WICT Grant Fund for St Marys and Kingsland
Awarded through the Peoples Health Trustâ€™s Local Conversation programme, which involves supporting residents to take control of the design, development and delivery of the local initiatives by developing a shared vision for their community, this grant fund forms part of a wider plan to improve the area so that St Marys and Kingsland become a better place to grow, live and work.
Grants awarded each year will vary between Â£100 minimum and Â£5000 maximum. Projects must be able to demonstrate a high level of social return, and added value for the local area and community. Grants awarded will vary.
Three priority categories were identified during our local conversation and are agreed as priority for this year.Â The current priority categories for 1st April 2016 are:
