Our great grants are back!
In the last seven years, more than £140,000 has been donated to local community groups through our grants and we’re looking for more worthy projects to support this year.
Our 2018 scheme, which launches on Tuesday 3 April, offers grants of up to £5,000 and aims to focus on groups involved in education, financial security, tackling homelessness and supporting employability.
In 2017 The Nottingham supported 14 groups benefiting more than 4,500 people in our local communities. Projects included Pulp Friction in Nottingham, financially supporting twenty work placements for adults with learning disabilities; Sound Café in Leicester, to support ongoing services for homeless and vulnerable people; and Burgh Community Debt Advice Centre near Skegness, to support volunteers and debt advice.
David Marlow, Chief Executive said: “For over 165 years the vision of The Nottingham has been to help local communities prosper and our Doing Good Together initiative reflects this.
“I am delighted to be launching our grants again this year to make a real difference to people in our communities. Hearing about our awardees’ work is always such an inspiration.”
This year we are also teaming up with Global Radio again for a four week promotional campaign on the Capital East Midlands Breakfast show with Dino, Pete and Tyles and in a further eleven counties through digital streaming. Listen out from the 23 April to hear our campaign. For full details on the scheme visit thenottingham.com/grants/.
