Inclusive Neighbourhood Grants Scheme - round four

Trafford Council has granted another £20,000 of funding to support local events and projects through the fourth round of its Inclusive Neighbourhood Grant scheme. 

Grants of up to £500 have been awarded to individuals or community groups to fund one-off events and grants of up to £2,000 have been awarded to community groups to fund on-going projects.

For the fourth round of grants for 2019, over £58,000 worth of applications were received for £20,000 of funding and groups from across the borough such as Stockdale, who were awarded £2000 to support their Juniors Club.

Natalie James-Crumlish, Fundraising Manager at Stockdales said:

“Your kind grant will help the children supported at Stockies Juniors club to get involved with high quality activities, so they can have the same experiences as other kids. That is such a wonderful thing to do, it will make such a difference to children who need that extra care and support.”

Cllr Graham Whitham, Trafford Council’s Executive Member for Communities and Partnerships, said:

We are very proud of our Inclusive Neighbourhood Grant scheme and are delighted to be able to offer financial support to individuals and community groups in the borough.

Our vision is about making Trafford a better borough for all and these grants go some way in delivering that. The money we give out will have an immediate benefit to our residents and neighbourhoods.
