Bid for share of handouts

Have your say

GRANTS totalling £20,000 are available for community groups in part of Sheffield, who can each bid for sums of up to £500.

Sheffield Council’s South Community Assembly is making the cash available, divided into £5,000 for organisations in each ward in its area - Gleadless Valley, Nether Edge, Graves Park and Beauchief and Greenhill.

Residents from around the area will be able to vote which applicants should receive grants through the assembly’s You Choose initiative.

Applicants have until Friday, May 20 to make their bid for funding and decisions will be made at an assembly meeting in June or July.
