Community First Programme: Neighbourhood Matched Fund


Community First is a funding programme from the Office of Civil Society. 

£30 Million is now available nationwide  to fund community projects in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the country. 

Community First Neighbourhood Matched Fund is an initiative that provides local communities with the means to address their own priorities. Communities will set up local panels in each eligible ward, which will decide upon projects for funding in their area. 

It is a matched fund programme, which means that every £1 provided in funding must be matched by a similar amount of in-kind donations (this means donations of cash, services, free products or volunteer time).

The East Community Assembly Area has £339,100 in total with £56,240 to be allocated by 31st March 2012. If your group is in the Arbourthorne, Darnall, Manor Castle or Richmond ward and you are interested in applying for a grant of between £250 and £2500, contact the East Community Assembly Team on 0114 2735708 or communityassemblyeast@sheffield.gov.uk to find out more.
