The Thonock Trust Grant Program is now open to improve the lives and wellbeing of those living in Gainsborough, Corringham, Blyton, Springthorpe and Lea through the provision of education, training, activities and personal development.
What Can The Trust Fund?
- They can fund projects that benefit people still in full time education (primary and secondary schools, further education establishments), that want to encourage educational or cultural activities which are not a statutory responsibility.
- They can fund local projects that encourage and/or assist more people to become involved in local community activities.
- They can fund projects that help build a group or individual’s capacity through training, skill sharing and best practice sessions.
- They can provide funding to cover activity costs eg equipment, travel and associated costs.
- Individuals who need funds to allow them to get back into the workplace or training (uniforms, course material or equipment).
- Priority will be given to projects that have a long lasting impact, provide good value for money and contribute towards sustainability.
- Grants to groups are for a maximum of £2,000.
- Grants to individuals are for a maximum of £250.
- Payments are normally made in advance.
- Eligible groups are:
- Small Voluntary or Community organisations. This may include charities, companies limited by guarantee, and social enterprises. Other not for profit organisations may also be eligible;
- Locally run and managed. They are unlikely to fund applicants that are local branches of a larger regional or national organisation, unless they have their own bank account and management committee;
- Educational establishments (schools, colleges, adult education, excluded kids sites);
- Individuals that want to get back into work, training or education.
