Return of funding scheme

COMMUNITY groups and organisations in Scarborough are invited to apply for a grant of up to £1,000 for projects promoting art, sport and culture.

Scarborough Council is working with the Urban Area Forum to launch a second ‘Voice Your Choice’ funding programme - a unique way of allocating public funds where local residents have the final say on which projects get the go-ahead.

The scheme, which is being funded by the Central Urban Area Committee will be launched on August 1 and is being delivered following the previous success of similar funding initiatives held across the borough last year.

For further information about the fund, or to request an application pack, contact Scarborough Council’s neighbourhood support officers Kerry Lee on (01723) 232472 or Matthew Joseph on (01723) 383562.

The closing date for applications is Friday October 28.
