The Boost Choose Now Change Lives programme is offering community grants to support a range of community groups and organisations. The grants will be managed by Groundwork, a specialist charity working locally and nationally to transform lives in the UK’s most disadvantaged communities, and will help groups make a difference in their local areas and in truly facilitating change that will benefit communities for years to come.
They are calling for all community sports clubs, community action groups, youth work, music groups and food banks to get involved and nominate themselves to be in with a chance of a stake of the £20,000 grant fund.
Grantees will be the organisations which, in the opinion of the judges, best reflect and encourage the following values:
- Diversity (given a weighting of 15%) – benefit a diverse range of communities
- Legacy (given a weighting of 15%) – the grants should leave a lasting legacy for the community to enjoy for years to come
- Impact (given a weighting of 70%) – the project should be high impact and make a real difference to a community
