Thanks to Skelmanthorpe TRA for providing details of this scheme. They succesfully applied for £500 funding from this grant for their gala this year.
Charitable organisations and community groups can apply for grants of between £100 and £2,000 (£500 if the applicant is a newly formed group) to help them find co-operative solutions to community challenges. The Co-operative Group is particularly interested in supporting locally led and run groups that can demonstrate co-operative values and principles, such as self-help, equality, democracy and concern for the community. Last year the total funding available was over £3.2 million.
