Partnership applications are welcome, so if you can’t meet these criteria, you can still take part by partnering up with an organisation who does qualify. If you need help to find a partner, please get in touch with us at Ward6CC@crer.org.uk. We’re happy to share your ideas with organisations who might want to work with you.
The guidance below explains everything in more detail.
how do we apply?
To apply for funding, start by looking through the application pack below. It’s especially important to read the guidance. This will explain more about how to make the application and how to answer the questions on the proposal form.
The Ward 6 Community Choices Residents Panel want to share information to inspire ideas for proposals. The final two documents in the application pack below are a summary of local survey results and some facts and figures about Ward 6. These should help you to create a proposal that will meet local needs well.
Before you apply, your organisation needs to agree what proposal(s) it wants to put forward and nominate someone to lead the funding application. That person should complete the proposal form and send it in to Ward6CC@crer.org.uk along with a copy of your constitution by the closing date (12 noon on Thursday 26th September).
We’re planning some networking meetings in Ward 6 over the application period to let people with ideas for proposals come together to discuss and ask questions. If you’re interested in attending a meeting, please email Ward6CC@crer.org.uk and ask for information on the Ward 6 Community Choices networking meetings.
