Making local communities prosper with a little help from The Nottingham

01/01/2015
Community
We have a long and rich history of helping our local communities to grow and our work in the community is no exception! 

Since 2011, we have worked with Nottinghamshire Community Foundation* to award financial support to projects that help our local communities to prosper. Previous grants have funded everything from home-starter packs to employability courses giving away almost £75,000 to good causes. 

This year, each branch will have up to £250 to award to a local cause to help their valuable work. 

Chief Executive David Marlow explains, ‘Since we started Doing Good Together we have been delighted to work with so many local grass root causes that make a difference in our community. It is inspiring to see how a little help really does go a long way.’

Between 4th February and 23rd March, our branches will be looking for projects to support in the following areas;

Education
Projects that improve education for both young people and adults, specifically in numeracy and literacy, giving them ambition for the future.

Financial security
Projects that help people to develop solid financial skills, manage their money effectively and avoid debt.

Homelessness
Projects that reduce homelessness, support homeless people and help provide affordable, quality housing.

Employability
Projects that provide proper job training and skills, access to relevant qualifications and help finding jobs.

Who can apply?
We are actively seeking applications from local groups providing services in our communities. If you are operating within ten miles of a branch, have an income less than £300,000 and have a project taking place within the next year you’d like some help with, we’d love to hear from you.
