Grants

 

West Itchen Community Trust act as an ‘enabler’ by helping organisations navigate the process of searching for funding, and teach them the skills necessary for applying for funds; controlling and monitoring their project; fulfilling reporting requirements; and developing sustainable ongoing services through the development of enterprising activity.

 

If you need to discuss your needs with an adviser, Gulzar Shariff , Community Project Worker, will be able to help. Contact us on 023 8038 8580 or at info@wict.co.uk

 

 

WICT Grant Fund for St Marys and Kingsland

 

Awarded through the Peoples Health Trust’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 £100 minimum and £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.  The current priority categories for 1st April 2016 are:

 

  • Grass root activities that bring communities together.
  • Capacity building. Building on what’s working well 
  • Improved community space to meet and do things
