MOST RECENT GRANTS MEETING – OCTOBER 2017
Another record number of good quality grants applications were received and more than 40 were considered in detail by the Trustees and Grants Committee. It is becoming harder and harder to decide which are the most worthy and eventually a good spread of sectors were granted to. A substantial award was made to the Sussex Community Foundations new Youth Action Fund and we very much look forward to working with them on this sector. A further £17k was shared amongst 18 other organisations.
A selection of the groups we are now pleased to be supporting:
- Yada in Worthing
- The Bevy
- First Base Day Centre
We were also glad to support again the Carers Centre in Hastings with funds for a telephone support service and help those Southdown Men in Sheds!
Our next grants meeting will take place in February (application deadline 31st Jan 2018).
