MP Bob Seely is calling Island charities, groups and associations to take advantage of grant funding available through the Isle of Wight Community Fund.
The fund – which provides grants of up to £3,000 – is available to support vulnerable and disadvantaged people on the Isle of Wight, and address issues of deprivation.
Bob said: “I urge local charities and groups to apply for this funding, which is exclusively available to the Island.
“It could be used for groups such as youth clubs, lunch clubs, exercise classes, outreach work, out of school activities, IT classes – anything which benefits vulnerable and disadvantaged people on the Isle of Wight.
“I hope that the fund can be used to support a range of projects across the Island.”
The closing date for applications is 6 February. Further details can be found here: http://www.hiwcf.com/funds/isle-of-wight-grassroots/
