Exeter City Council is making available grants of up to £300 for groups that support community initiatives.
Cllr Rob Hannaford, lead Councillor for Housing and Community Involvement, said: “We want to help and support city councillors in their work as community leaders and local champions, and I am sure that these small community grants will facilitate many good works across the city.”
The funding can be used to support ideas such as children’s activities, or projects that bring residents together to work on ideas for improving their neighbourhood.
Any idea that helps to bring a sense of pride and bring the community together will be considered. Groups should discuss their idea with their local city councillor.
Application forms from www.exeter.gov.uk/communitygrants or contact 01392 265531. The city councillors will make decisions on how the money should be spent in the area they represent.
