This is the second round of the Local Connections Fund, a £4 million investment designed to help small charities and community groups working to reduce loneliness by building community connections across England. It’s aimed at small organisations in England with income around the £50-£70k mark. The closing date is 6/8/21. Applications are easy and short! This will be used to fund hundreds of ‘microgrants’ between £300 and £2,500, so small, local organisations (with an annual income of £50,000 or less) can bring people and communities together.
By a ‘community’, we mean people:
– living in the same area – like a city, town or street
– who share characteristics – like beliefs, values, interests or faith
– who can be grouped together in some other way.
If you received funding in Round 1, you will not be eligible for funding in Round 2. Applications close 6 August 2021 at 5pm. Click on the link to the Local Connections Fund website WEBSITE LINK
