£20,000 windfall for Rushey Green community up for grabs in March!

Funding open

Rushey Green’s Community First Funding programme is now open until midday 28th March, for applications for community projects in the heart of Catford: Rushey Green.

Rushey Green Community Projects has opened up its funding programme to groups in Rushey Green to access, so whether you’re a charity, local residents, or a group of local mums that want to do something in your communities this programme is for you, but you will need to be quick – funding closes midday 28th March 2013.

To help this years applicants we have a workshop on Thursday 21st March 2013 – 7pm at Lewisham Town Hall where we’ll help you complete your application!

In 2012 the programme funded activities targeted at the Disabled community, the arts, environment and planning, youth activity and supporting local residents in Rushey Green to have more of a say. Rushey Green Community Projects now wants to help even more communities, and we’re put together a simple application process to help you kick-start your projects.

Local residents have agreed the six broad areas of our work to focus on these are:

  • improving the built environment
  • dealing with traffic
  • activities for younger people
  • antisocial behavior and crime
  • activities for older people
  • Community Voice (local people having their say)

MS Society celebrate getting grant

Former recipient of a grant Barbara Britton, Chair of the Lewisham MS Society said “Funding from the Community First Project in Rushey Green has allowed us to develop services to people affected by MS in Lewisham. The application was easy to complete and manage – I wish all funding was as simple as this.”

The application deadline is Midday 28th March 2013. An evening will be held at Lewisham Town Hall Civic Suite on Thursday 21st March at 7pm for groups wishing to get support in completing the application.
