Groups can get grants to help the vulnerable
3:00pm Sunday 23rd December 2012 in News
Funding is available to support community projects that help vulnerable people in cold housing in Keighley.
The aim is to reduce the levels of death, ill-health and serious illness over the coming months.
Bradford District Community Fund has a new small grants scheme that will help bring warmth to homes across the district. It has been made possible through the Warm Homes, Healthy People Project, funded by the NHS and Bradford Council.
Informal groups of residents and schemes such as Neighbourhood Watch and Snow Wardens can apply for up to £250 to run activities, such as providing snow-clearing for neighbours or setting up a coffee morning in a community centre.
Community groups and charities with a constitution can apply for up to £2,500 for larger-scale projects.
The deadline for the receipt of all applications is Friday, January 4.
