The Council 

Five community groups in Erewash have received a slice of nearly £7,000 of funding thanks to the council’s latest round of community grant awards.

One of the successful recipients, Erewash Sound, who are based in Vernon Street, Cotmanhay, has received £2,000 and will use the funding to update their servers and the use of a modern operating system. It will also help fund Erewash Sound’s Training Academy.

Other local organisations who will be benefitting from a cash boost this spring are:

  • Fibroactive – a support group for sufferers and carers of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The grant funding will go towards the costs of providing instructor training courses. (£2,000).
  • West Hallam Village Hall Charity – installation of drainage channels. (£750)
  • Erewash Community Transport – funding to provide emergency first aid training courses for staff. (£1,296)
  • She Will – a female youth empowerment project. The grant funding will be used to provide room hire and first aid training for their volunteers. (£630).

Erewash Borough Council’s Lead Member for Community Engagement, Councillor Val Clare, says:

“Once again it is fantastic to see how the council’s community grants are helping support local people through the many groups and organisations in the borough. I would encourage anyone that is involved with an organisation or group that could benefit from an award to apply for the next round of funding when it becomes available.”

Community grants for large projects across the borough have provided much needed support to many organisations, groups and charities over the years. Grant funding is available twice a year in April and September.

More information is available on our community grants page.
