Community groups in the Newton Aycliffe and Middridge are set to benefit from a new pot of funding dedicated to organisations working with children and young people.
Great Aycliffe & Middridge Partnership (GAMP) and the Pioneering Care Partnership (PCP) will be launching the ‘Small Grants Fund for Children & Young People’ at the Celebrating ‘GREAT’ Aycliffe event.
The Small Grants Fund is aimed at providing Activities for Children & Young People – groups can apply for grants of up to £1,000 to fund projects and activities related to children and young people.
Local groups are encouraged to attend the event and pick up an application pack.
The event is taking place on Saturday 8th November, from 10am until 2pm, at Newton Aycliffe Youth & Community Centre.
In addition to the launch of the ‘Small Grants Fund for Children & Young,’ a wide range of local community groups and service providers will also be attending to promote their activities and services.
There’ll also be free activity taster sessions and demonstrations taking place throughout the day.
A really vital part of the event is also to ask local people to vote for their most important priorities – the things that you think matter the most to you and your community – the results of your votes will give the GAMP Board members a steer when they look at deciding what priorities we should be working on for the area next year.
GAMP has an Area Budget of £120,000 to spend on local projects to address the priorities each year – so it’s really crucial that you take this opportunity to tell us what you feel is important.
