Community Grants briefing in Sheffield

Community Grants briefing in Sheffield

Tenants, residents’ groups and small community groups in Sheffield are being invited to apply for grants for community events or projects.

Community Grants

Newground Together, the charitable arm of Together Housing Group which owns and manages over 1,800 homes in Sheffield, is working in partnership with Manor and Castle Development Trust to hold a drop-in event for groups active or servicing Together Housing Group estates.

The event at Steel Inn on Harborough Avenue on Tuesday 18 February between 11am and 1pm will offer groups the opportunity to find out more about Newground Together Community Grants Programme and other funding streams.

Groups can apply for grants of up to £500. To be eligible, the groups must have a bank account in their group’s name and their project must meet one of the following:

  • Support for marginalised or vulnerable groups
  • Education or training
  • Community action/capacity building/community Safety
  • Health and wellbeing
  • Community events
  • Improving the environment for local people
  • Tackling social and economic exclusion

Since it was launched in July 2019, the fund has supported 13 groups and has held similar briefings in Halifax and Blackburn. Previously supported projects include improvements to a community room at an extra care scheme to reduce social isolation and an environmental enhancement project led by Daisyfield Tenants’ Association.

Peter Jordan, Director of Newground Together, said: “As the charitable arm of Together Housing Group, we partner with communities to build better futures together. We invest the group’s commercial profits into projects that bring people together and change lives.

“We are committed to providing health and wellbeing activities, supporting people into jobs and training opportunities and connecting with young people.

“So if you want to find out more about what we do and how we can help you, come along to Steel Inn where we will be happy to answer your questions.”

If you can’t attend the event but are interested in applying for funding, contact Community Development Officer Belle Paterson on belle.paterson@newground.co.uk or 07720 560409.
