The Civic Pride Fund, which offers small one-off grants to support community-based projects, which will benefit and improve the borough, is now open for applications.
The fund aims to inspire local community organisations and the voluntary sector to get involved in ensuring Richmond upon Thames continues to be an attractive, enjoyable and distinctive area and the best place in London to work, live and learn. This fund will also help to inspire community spirit.
Cllr Pamela Fleming, Strategic Cabinet Member for Community, Business and Culture: ”In the All in One survey local people said they would like a chance to be more involved in making a difference in their community, the Civic Pride Fund offers this opportunity. Richmond upon Thames is already a beautiful borough with parks and open spaces, busy high streets and tourist attractions, however there are still areas that need work and maintaining. This fund provides local people and our already vibrant voluntary sector and community groups an opportunity to really get involved and help continue to create a borough to be proud of.
“If you have a local project that you feel will benefit the community and the area you live in, I would like to encourage you to apply for this small grant and have your chance to really make a difference.”
The Fund is now open for applications from voluntary organisations and community groups. In October 2011 it will open to individuals and informal groups.
