Funding available for community projects

26 October 2016

Community groups can now get their hands on up to £1,000 of funding for projects that will make a difference to the lives of Sanctuary Housing’s residents and their communities.

Sanctuary’s Grand Ideas Fund

The leading housing provider’s Grand Ideas Fund is now open to local community groups and charities who need some financial support to deliver activities and projects.

Sanctuary’s five priorities

Successful applications will be for initiatives which fit one or more of Sanctuary’s five priorities:

  • employment, education, skills and training
  • health and well-being
  • community safety and infrastructure
  • environment
  • financial inclusion.

Sanctuary is looking for applications for up to £1,000 from community and residents groups, registered charities, schools, social enterprises or parish/town councils.

Marie-Claire Wattison, Sanctuary’s head of community investment, said: “Sanctuary is a business that operates at the heart of neighbourhoods and we are committed to investing in community-led initiatives which address the needs and aspirations of our customers.
