The Community Partnership Scheme has now re-opened and is accepting applications for funding.
The Community Partnerships Scheme has been developed to provide support, advice and grant funding to community projects in South Derbyshire.
It encourages self-help, joint working relationships and the fulfilment of community aspiration.
It is designed to assist community groups to attract external funds such as lottery money to South Derbyshire.
We offer an initial meeting to discuss your project.
We offer advice on how best to develop your project, where to get other funding, and how to improve your applications
The CPS has been developed to support capital projects. Grants will normally be between five per cent and 50 per cent of the total project cost, with a minimum award of £1,000 and a maximum award of £25,000. The level of support will depend upon a number of factors including how closely the project addresses the criteria within the guidance notes and the amount of funds remaining in the grant programme.
Organisations will normally only be allowed to receive one grant in any financial year.
We will support a wide variety of projects providing that they benefit communities within South Derbyshire.
Typical examples include:
Application forms are considered by a panel of five councillors who make recommendations to the Housing and Community Services Committee who have the final decision on awards.
If a project is supported the applicant will be advised of the amount granted and conditions.
If you are a community group or voluntary organisation then please see resources for voluntary groups for more information.
If you wish to discuss any aspect of the information contained in the guidelines, or a potential project, then please contact us.
