Funding to help community groups and charities thrive across Adur

Released: Friday, 18 January 2019

Community groups and charities across Adur have received a cash boost thanks to support from the Adur Community Grants scheme.

The scheme, which is run by Adur District Council, awards grants of up to £5,000 to local voluntary, community and social enterprises.

Over the past ten years, Adur Community Grants has given more than £720,000 to around 200 different community projects.

These have included:

Councillor David Simmons, Executive Member for Health and Wellbeing, and Councillor Les Alden, Ward Member for Eastbrook, recently visited Fishersgate Youth Club to award the funds, which will enable them to continue their work to meet the needs of young people in Sussex.

Cllr Simmons said:

“At Adur District Council we proud to continue our small grants programme, which provides a much-needed cash boost for local groups and good causes, as well as recognising the role played by our vibrant voluntary and community sector.”

The Adur Community Grants will re-open in April. If you are a local voluntary, community or social enterprise in the district and would like to find out more, please visit our Adur Community Grants page.
