Grants of up to £5,000 for projects addressing deprivation in Hertfordshire within 25 miles of Royston

Application deadline 17th August 2020

Grants of up to £5,000 are available to groups operating in Hertfordshire to address deprivation but especially rural isolation, within 25 miles of Royston.
We are looking for projects that particularly focus on rural isolation in the part of the county within 25 miles of Royston. This includes all of East Herts, North Herts, Stevenage and Welwyn Garden City. Other types of deprivation will also be considered.

Groups applying will need to demonstrate that they:

  • Are meeting an identified need in the county - we encourage groups to reference evidence where available. We encourage applicants to reference our own Hertfordshire Matters reports or other relevant research or data where appropriate.
  • Can demonstrate how the money requested will help them to make a positive difference (i.e. have clear objectives and outcomes).
  • Are well thought through and costed appropriately.
  • Are well connected to the communities they serve.
  • Will be able to spend the funding requested within 12 months of the grant being awarded.
