Can you help us to spread the word about the Made Local Fund?

Semble is teaming up with Carling for another year to launch and deliver the Made Local Fund. This is a great opportunity for people who are passionate about improving their local community to get the support and funding needed to do something great in their local area and tell the story of their project. The Made Local Fund will be offering over £300,000 to support community ideas, community projects and charities across Great Britain to reach their goals. The first round of nominations closes on 14th July 2019. 

All community projects are eligible as long as they fit the simple guidelines set out on the web form. Whether looking to buy new furniture from a community hall, provide services to vulnerable people in the community or other ideas that bring people together, the Made Local Fund is open to ideas.

Whether you have 5 minutes or 5 hours, your support to help the news about this fund reach as many community projects and ideas as possible would be invaluable.

Let’s come together to make change happen in local communities.
