Cash boost for communities

Have your say

a £1 MILLION fund has been set up by Derbyshire County Council for communities to bid for cash for building projects or sports facilities which residents will be able use for at least 10 years.

The Community Building Grant fund will be launched next month.

Councillor Carol Hart, Cabinet member for Public Health, said: “The Community Building Grant will provide a funding boost to help local groups with big ideas.”

The cash is aimed at projects designed to help groups improve the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of their communities.
