Trafford Council £20,000 2017 Be Bold Community Safety Grants Scheme Deadline Extended to Friday 28th April 2017!

Trafford Council has £20,000 of Be Bold Community Safety Grants up for grabs from Monday 6th March 2017. The money is to support individuals and local community groups looking to set up community projects to help tackle community safety issues.

Through the scheme, individuals and community groups with project ideas that will benefit local communities, can bid for a share of the money. Projects need to show how they will benefit local communities by helping tackle issues such as youth nuisance and misuse of green spaces.
Applying is easy, it just needs a short application form completing, giving an outline of the project idea, why it is needed and the difference it would make to the local community.

Trafford's Executive Member for Communities and Partnerships, Cllr John Lamb, said: "The Council is committed to encouraging and supporting the many local people and community groups that are working tirelessly to improve things in their local neighbourhood. By working together, we are all able to ensure the Borough remains a safe, green and attractive place where people love to live and visit.

Through this scheme we are able to provide funding support for many of the innovative projects and ideas which are imaginative residents come up with. Their ingenuity and understanding of local issues and ideas around tackling these never cease to impress us. I am really looking forward to seeing many more new ideas coming to us in this latest grants round."
