Funds are now available for wider community events with the establishment of two grant programmes, small projects under £500 and large projects over £500. The projects are supported under five main aims, community action, community organisations, charitable support, environmental action and community health and wellbeing. In relation to the community there is now a greater sense of confidence as the development has been achieved and is developing funds that can be fed back into the community.
