Community and voluntary groups in Corby are invited to make a bid for cash.

The borough council’s One Corby Grants Committee is looking to support a number of not-for-profit and community-based organisations which could help provide essential services to Corby residents over the next three years.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate how their organisation will be able to support the priorities set out in the council’s community plan.

Its key themes are safer and stronger communities, economic development, jobs and skills creation, regeneration and growth and health and well-being.

Corby Council’s lead member for community, Cllr John McGhee, said: “The grant funding pot allows the council to support local organisations that are committed to working in partnership with the grant sub committee to improve the quality of life for people in the borough.

“Although the funding pot is limited, we want to encourage all those who think they fit the criteria to submit their applications and help us ensure this money reaches local voluntary and community-based organisations.”

To be considered, an application must be completed and returned by Friday, March 8. The form can be completed online at www.corby.gov.uk or a hard copy can be requested by calling the council’s community development officer Alison Gaffney on 01536 464018.
