MOST RECENT GRANTS MEETING – FEBRUARY 2018
As we move into our 5th year the Trustees were pleased to note that Homity now has a good local presence and that they have granted over £110k in that time… This Grants meeting considered another record number of applications but unfortunately not everyone can be funded. So, after a full afternoon of consideration, they were really glad to fully fund many new causes applications as well as offer more substantial donations to a couple of existing partners. From Young mens organisations through carer relief to dementia sufferers workshops and Youth centre redecoration, we really do try and spread our smaller awards across many sectors.
A selection of the groups we are now pleased to be supporting:
- Brighton Homeless Service
- East Sussex Young Carers
- Brighton Youth centre
- A band of Brothers
We were also able to continue our working relationship with the Martlets Hospice (and rashly agreeing to taking part in their sponsored bike ride to Paris in September….) and to support one of our Grants committee members to run the Brighton Marathon in April.
Our next grants meeting will take place in JUNE (application deadline 31st MAY 2018).
