Communities Looking Forward Grants Programme 2022

During 2021, some community activities returned amidst the challenges the pandemic created, such as new variants, restrictions and safety concerns. Especially hit were groups working with older residents, groups that meet indoors, and the creative arts.

With having another difficult year, we have groups and organisations at various stages of activity and development. Recognising this, we are continuing to offer the Communities Looking Forward Grants Programme in 2022.

We hope the broad range and remit of the grant will enable as many community groups as possible to be supported across 2022 to:

  • make plans to re-start activities
  • sustain activities and income across 2022
  • build on activities undertaken in 2021
  • support an emerging or growing need identified during 2021.

Individuals or small groups of residents who would like to make a change in their neighbourhood but are not part of a group are welcome to apply for funding.

For further information on this, what can be funded and how to apply please read the guidance notes.

If you have any questions, or would like to discuss ideas for a new group, please call 07714 521567 or email Alastair.Stewart@letchworth.com
