Good News for Uttlesford Groups

Independence, Choice & Control Fund

Small Grants Awards 2015

 

The ICCF Small Grant fund 2015 was available to constituted voluntary & community groups delivering services in Uttlesford District and would fund up to £1,000 towards project costs.

  At a recent panel meeting, funding valued at £9163 was awarded to 12 Uttlesford groups. Projects funded included sports and arts equipment, support for information outreach work, environmental improvement and facilitating respite

  We are delighted that this fund has supported so many local groups and we know that even this limited funding can make a huge difference to what can be achieved in our district.

We are hopeful that we will be able to have another round of funding in the future.

 (The Independence, Choice and Control Small Grants Scheme is part of an Essex County Council initiative to improve the lives of local people and build resilient communities. The Fund was administered by the Council for Voluntary Service Uttlesford and evaluated by a panel made up of local representatives on behalf of CVS, Essex County Council and the West Essex Clinical Commissioning Group.)
