Last chance to bid for funding

Have your say

A COMMUNITY group working in inner-city Sheffield is appealing for similar organisations in the area to join with it by tomorrow to submit a collective bid for council funding.

The consortium of 11 groups led by the Yemeni Community Association is tendering for funding to provide young people’s activities in Burngreave and other parts of north-east Sheffield under the Kids Can Do scheme.

Spokesman Jon Cowley said: “The council is retendering work from April 1 and our consortium will be submitting a bid, hopefully with us as a partner, operating in the north east of the city.

“We are keen to include more groups in the bid to enable more groups in the area to access this funding. The advantage of coming through the consortium is much of the pain of the paperwork is done by us.”

Interested groups should call Jon by tomorrow on 07739 878589.
