Hastings Borough Council would like voluntary and community groups that work for the benefit of people in Hastings to make applications for funding under the CPF programme by 12 noon on 18th October 18.
Deputy leader Kim Forward, lead councillor for regeneration and development said, “
“We are seeking to protect and support some of our most vulnerable people through the Community Partnership fund programme. Public sector cuts mean that many people find themselves with very little or no support and guidance at a time when they need it most. The voluntary and community organisations who deliver the programme will be expected to show the impact clearly through careful monitoring.”
The council’s CPF programme priorities are as follows:
- Housing, legal, welfare and debt advice
- Domestic violence support
- Provision of advice and support to community organisations (voluntary sector infrastructure support)
- Rough sleepers outreach support
- Advice and support to migrant and newly settled communities
Broad criteria are provided for each area for grant funding. For details of the criteria and funding available, please see documents below. More details can be found at: https://www.hastings.gov.uk/my_community/grants/communitypartnershipfund
