As we are all aware, public buildings and spaces are vital; whether they are local libraries, green spaces or community centres.
Years of austerity measures and cuts to local authority budgets have meant that hard-pressed councils are having to sell, cut or shut crucial parts of community infrastructure. Locality (the national network of ambitious and enterprising community-led organisations) has written a report about this and your comments are invited. More information can be found on the Locality website here
The Trust awards grants of between £5,000 and £50,000 for capital improvement projects in one of the following categories:

Just a reminder that the Better Derbyshire Dales Fund will support organisations or specific projects that aim to develop or strengthen communities and/or people’s health and well-being. We are also interested in supporting less popular causes and work that supports disadvantaged and marginalised sections of the community. There is a capital strand that will support village halls, community centres and sports clubs with costs towards improving facilities for their community.
The grants scheme also includes funds from North Derbyshire CCG and Derbyshire County Council Public Health and therefore we welcome applications from community groups doing something that has a health and well-being benefit.
There are quarterly rounds for applications with the next closing date being Friday 5th May 2017.
Please contact Sarah Paisley or Jonathan Simcock at DDCVS for an application form. Tel 01629 812154 or email enquiries@ddcvs.org.uk
The form can also be downloaded from our website by going to http://www.ddcvs.org.uk/projects
