Yelvertoft Community Funding Initiative. ‘Friends of Yelvertoft’
Yelvertoft has access to a many sources of funding available which could enhance and support our community, however each source of funding has its own rules and regulations and many of these are not available for the Parish Council (PC) to apply to. The route to obtaining this funding is often complex and the PC has asked for help in providing support on these applications. To be clear, although the Funding Initiative is a PC initiative, it will have no link to the PC, takes no direction from the PC, and is a completely independent initiative supporting each organisation separately and possibly several in competition for the funding. In fact, one of the funders it can apply to for project funding is the PC itself. The PC will support (under auditable procedures) ”in confidence” if required, any application from any organisation or potential organisation offering your group advice and support; either in a procedural context or if you feel appropriate leading your request on behalf of your group.

The government are providing a grant to support small businesses, including cricket clubs with a one-off grant of £10,000.

Grants of up to £10,000 to improve your place or space and keep your community physically active. Visit the website for further information.
Storm-damaged facilities could soon be back up and running thanks to this fund. Organisations with facilities – such as clubhouses, courts and pitches – affected by the recent storms can now apply for grants of up to £15,000 after we added an emergency storm damage option to our Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Activity Fund. Please visit the website for further information.
NB: Some of the grants will have closed but it is worth checking back as they often re-open the funds, or offer an alternative.
If you cannot find a grant suitable, Grants Online can be a great website.
