Greenford Broadway Ward Community – First Panel


We are happy to announce that we have one last round of the Greenford Broadway Ward Community First Panel All information is available on!application-papers. This is for groups working within the Greenford Broadway on projects that have a positive impact on young people. The closing date for this round is Friday 5th September. We have just under £6000 to award to different groups and we need to distribute this money in September and this will be the last round of funding available.

Key points to note: You can apply for up to £2500 but you need the same amount match funding. This can be volunteer hours, in-kind donations or sponsorship. The Community First Panel meets and considers the application and then recommends the agreed grants to the Community Development Foundation, which provides the finances directly. There is full guidance available and you will be able to contact Jackie Sear for help with the form if required.
