Community groups, schools, health bodies and charities in England, Wales and Scotland can apply for funding of up to £1000 to support projects which benefit local communities. The types of projects funded can be very broad and will cover the direct costs needed to deliver the project.
This could include buying litter pickers and bags for a community clean-up days, plants, spades and forks to plant up a new community garden, the cost of a minibus for a day trip for a community group or the materials needed to paint a room at the local hospice.
Carriers for Causes funding is available to good causes within two miles of a One Stop Shop and is made available from the money raised from the 5p bag charge in One Stop stores.
Applications can be submitted at any time.
