Building Stronger Communities - briefing and help session

 Registration is closed for this event
Have you got a good idea? Would you like to make a difference in your local area? The Building Stronger Communities grant of up to £1500 could help you make your idea a reality!

A briefing and help session where we can trouble-shoot some of your ideas and provide support with the application form.

Building Stronger Communities grants are:

  • For groups of individuals or community organisations with an idea to benefit their local area, where a small grant would really get it off the ground.  You don't even need your own bank account to apply as HVA can help by holding the funds for you.
  • Particularly targeted at supporting people and groups to build on their strengths and talents to make their communities better places to live.
  • Available for new activities, or developing an existing activity in a new direction.
  • Available across the whole of East Sussex
  • For groups of individuals or community organisations with an income of less than £50,000 a year.
