If your local charity or community group has carried out a project to benefit the community you could be eligible for an award of up to £5,000 or £10,000 from the new Working Together Fund.

Administered by The Suffolk Community Foundation on behalf of Suffolk County Council, the fund is now open to charities and community groups with a deadline for applications of Wednesday July 31, 2013.

The fund aims to support ‘working together’ initiatives in two categories. Community Awards are for groups that have delivered a project where they have pulled together to provide a service that will benefit the community, with high levels of community action and volunteer involvement. Partnership Awards are for groups that have delivered an outstanding project as a result of working with other charities or community groups, statutory and private sector organisations.

If you feel that your charity or community group has delivered a project that is worthy of an award from the Working Together Fund contact Sue Wright to discuss your proposal on 01473 786917.
