Lichfield District Council today (6 February) announced that nine organisations and groups have been offered a slice of £588,000 funding, as part of the council’s Service Level Agreements. The funding is spread out over three year agreements (April 2012 to March 2015), and will help the organisations to deliver a range of valuable services to the local community.
From helping unemployed people to get back into work, through to providing debt advice and reducing anti-social behaviour, the organisations who applied for funding were asked to show how their work contributes to the local community in one of six fundamental ways. These include: supporting disadvantaged families and helping them get back into work; helping for vulnerable people and their carers; delivering initiatives to reduce anti-social behaviour and the fear of crime; providing advice, information and guidance for legal, welfare, debt and benefits issues; supporting local voluntary and community organisations; and helping to create a more prosperous district, through tourism, heritage, arts and culture.
The organisations who successfully applied for a share of the funding are: Business Enterprise Support, Cherry Orchard Gardening Services, Erasmus Darwin Foundation, Lichfield and District Community & Voluntary Sector Support, Lichfield Arts, The Lichfield Festival, Lichfield & District Live at Home, Pathway Project and South East Staffs Citizens Advice Bureau.
