Voluntary and community groups are invited to bid for the latest round of grants of up to £500 from Redditch Borough Council.

‘Stronger Communities’ grants support local community-focused projects, and the first round of applications for this year opened on Monday 16th January.

The last round of Stronger Communities grants saw an evening out at the Palace Theatre and a Polish Support Group and Drop In funded, amongst other activities.

Head of Community Services Judith Willis said “In Redditch we have a really strong sense of community and this is in no small part due to the work carried out by people in organisations and voluntary groups who dedicate their time and skills. 
“We remain committed to supporting these projects across the borough and understand their importance to the local area.  What could your community group use a grant of £500 for?”

Stronger Communities grants are made available to groups, which do not have to be formally constituted to apply, in three rounds every year as part of the borough council’s wider annual grants programme.

Applications can be made until 4 p.m. on Friday 10th February 2017.  To apply, download an application form by looking at the voluntary and community sector funding pages at
