Inclusive Neighbourhood Grant scheme - Successful applicants in round six

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 6th round of grants for 2019, £28,110 worth of applications were received for £20,000 of funding and groups from across the borough such as The Therapy Shack who were awarded £1,950 to run a group, which will support the positive improvement of physical and mental health through pilates for the people attending.

Nikki Jones, Community Engagement and Fundraising Officer, Everyone Can said:

We’re delighted to receive the Inclusive Neighbourhoods grant! A lot of the disabled children that use our centre are unable to go trick or treating due to their disabilities so hosting a Halloween party at our accessible gaming centre is perfect for them! We have so many excited children already planning their costumes!”

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

Our vision is about making Trafford a better borough for all and these Inclusive Neighbourhood Grants are helping groups in delivering that vision.
I was very impressed with the applications that were submitted and delighted that many of the organisations funded are delivering projects and events that will have an immediate benefit for our residents and neighbourhoods."
