I’d encourage community groups in Newport East to apply for a share of the new £1 million Co-op Foundation Fund.
The new fund, launched by the Co-op’s charity The Co-op Foundation, enables groups in Wales with a community and environmental focus to safeguard spaces and become more sustainable. Welsh groups can apply for grants of up to £10,000 to explore enterprising ideas that could contribute to a more sustainable future for their community space. Funding couple support feasibility costs, technical or legal fees and, projects which test and explore new ideas. Eligible organisations must engage local people and support the environment.
The applications close at noon on Friday, 21 June and details of how to apply to the new fund can be found at this link: https://blog.coopfoundation.org.uk/index.php/2019/05/01/get-ready-to-grow/
