Community Action and the University of Derby are working in partnership to give voluntary and community organisations the opportunity to find out about funding and get advice and support from local businesses at the annual Funding, Support and Enterprise Fair.
There will be a great mix of funders, local businesses and statutory agencies on hand to offer advice, support and discounts on their services – look out for a full list of funders and organisations on the Community Action Derby website soon – www.communityactionderby.org.uk
There will also be funding and information sessions throughout the morning from Big Lottery, Heritage Lottery Fund, Crowdfund Derby and HMRC to answer any queries and give advice on applying for funding.
Everyone is welcome!  No need to book just come along.
The Veolia Environmental Trust is inviting not-for-profit organisations in England and Wales to apply for funding to support environmental or community-based projects that are located within five miles of a Veolia Environmental Services facility.
The Veolia Environmental Trust provides grant funding to community and environmental projects in England and Wales through the Landfill Communities Fund, using money provided by Veolia. In the 20 years since it was established, the Trust has awarded more than £68 million to more than 3,000 projects.
The Trust will consider applications from constituted not-for-profit organisations with a bank account that have a project that addresses at least one of the following categories:
  •  Community buildings and rooms, including community centres, village halls, community spaces within religious buildings, and Scout or Girlguiding buildings.
  •  Outdoor Spaces, including public parks, nature reserves, community gardens, footpaths, bridleways and cycle-paths.
  •  Play and recreation, including play areas, skate parks, Multi Use Games Areas (MUGAs), sports grounds, pavilions and changing rooms.
  •  Supporting Biodiversity, including the species related element of a BAP (national or local), the habitat related element of a BAP or HAP (national or local), and reintroduction programmes to a specific habitat.
The funding is to be used for capital improvement projects taking place at a single site. Grants of up to £75,000 are available to cover 80% of a project’s total cost. Match funding of at least 20% is required. Groups requesting grants of £40,000 or more are required to provide a Third Party Contribution. Please check your postcode on the following site to see if you are eligible. http://www.veoliatrust.org/funding/
You may be aware that the Big Lottery Fund has made changes recently including tripling the number of staff across England with the intention that staff will be working more closely with communities. This means that applicants should have the same local point of contact throughout your application.
The Big Lottery Fund is also moving away from standardised application forms so that they can focus on supporting the best ideas, not the people who are best at filling in forms. You can now submit your ideas online, by phone or in person.
Three types of funding are offered: –
National Lottery Awards for All
Our National Lottery Awards for All scheme offers funding from £300 to £10,000 to support what matters to people and communities.
Reaching Communities
Reaching Communities offers grants of over £10,000 to support single organisations with great ideas that enable communities to thrive.
Our Partnerships funding provides grants of over £10,000 for groups or organisations who have great ideas to do amazing things together.
Arts Council England announces a new £14.4 million fund to cultivate individual talent.
ACE has launched Developing your Creative Practice, a new £14.4m fund specifically designed to support independent creative practitioners. The programme is unlike any other current Arts Council fund because it will give practitioners time to work on ambitious and innovative projects, without the immediate pressure of showing their work publicly. Recipients will be able to use the funding to support periods of research, to develop new work and ideas, work internationally, and for training, networking or mentoring.
£3.6 million will be available annually for four years for Developing your Creative Practice. Applicants will be able to apply for grants from £2,000 to £10,000 from 12 April 2018.
Derbyshire Dales District Council’s Local Projects Fund has enabled a group of local residents, supported by Matlock in Bloom and the town’s Civic Association, to reinstate a garden on the site of a historic landmark.
Victoria Hall Gardens, above Smedley Street East, Matlock, was where the Victoria Hall Leisure Complex stood from 1896 to 1912 at a time when the town was famed as a “metropolis of hydropathy”, attracting tourists on a massive scale.
From 1914-89 the building became Derwent Woollen Mills before its demolition to make way for the Victoria Hall Gardens housing development.
Local ward member Councillor Martin Burfoot was approached by residents three years ago because the garden had become overgrown. As the site is owned by the District Council, officers were asked to help with tree works and wall repairs.
Meanwhile Matlock in Bloom sought further funding from the District Council’s Local Projects Fund, which assists community projects, while a group of nearby residents began work to clear and reinstate the garden. Now shrubs, herbaceous plants and bulbs have been planted to fill the gaps created by the clearance of weeds and scrub growth from the historic site.
Matlock Civic Association, which has provided many blue plaques to commemorate historic sites and buildings, worked with Matlock In Bloom to provide the two plaques, which were unveiled this week by Councillor Steve Flitter, Chairman of the District of the Derbyshire Dales, at the entrance to the Garden, which include benches and a vista of the town and the Riber hillside.

It is with heavy hearts that the Trustees announce that Friday 25th May will the last operating day for the Creche.
The Tiny Teddies Community Creche was started 3 years ago by a group of parents, wanting to continue the Creche facility at the Ashbourne Leisure Centre. The District Council had decided to close the group, despite objections from parents and a small group of volunteers, along with the original staff from the creche, re-opened the facility. Over the years, the Creche has looked after more than 120 different young people, as well as helping parents, grandparents and carers use the leisure centre facilities.
Along with fundraising efforts and grants from organisations, the Creche has run since April 2015 and helped parents keep active, whilst their children are looked after by caring, qualified staff.
Despite efforts to promote the creche and boost numbers, the Creche has seen a decline in usage. The trustees have worked hard to keep the creche going, however increasing pressures such as statutory wage increases affecting the cost to run the creche and we have remained reliant on fundraising. With no new trustees forthcoming, this has meant very difficult trading in the last 6 months.
The Trustees would like to thank firstly the staff, Natasha, Leah, Faith, Melissa, Jess, Katie and Angela. They have made the creche what it is, a welcoming place for little ones to play and be cared for. The Trustees would also like to thank the local and national groups that have helped with grants. All monies received have helped with running the creche and promoting its service to the local community.
The Trustees hope that all who have used the Creche will join them in thanking everyone involved and wish the staff well in their next endeavours.
