community groups are being invited to bid for grants of up to £2,000 from Sheffield Council.
Groups working city-wide to encourage volunteering, help combat social exclusion and inequalities, or promote community unity and wellbeing can apply for the funding.
Applications to the fund have opened for the 2013/14 financial year for organisations with an annual turnover of less than £30,000. The closing date for bids is October 8.
Decisions on which organisations will receive funding will be made by December 1.
