Our trustees and the Grants committee once again tried to juggle available funds from an increasingly high standard of Sussex based community applications. It is really hard to see them have to dismiss so many great causes and ideas but ultimately they award to the best of the bunch and come away feeling the many thousands of £’s will be well used locally.
A selection of the groups we are now pleased to be supporting:
- Moulsecoomb Forest Garden
- Spear Brighton
- BourneOut LBGT
- Action on Elder Abuse
We were also able to continue support for the Gateway womens centre in Portslade, provide substantial funds for a second domestic abuse course in Hove and recommit to the incredible work of Fun in Action befriending.
Our next grants meeting will take place in October (application deadline 30th Sept 2018).
