Description

Nottingham City Council is committed to supporting a thriving local Voluntary and Community Sector (VCS) .Approximately £31.1 million of funding is currently invested in the Voluntary and Community Sector each financial year through a range of channels and departments. The majority of the funding (£29.3m) is through City-wide arrangements and approximately £1.79 million is spent on a more localised basis in the City’s eight Areas per year.

Applications are now being sought from the local VCS for potential Lead Organisations to apply for Grant Aid Funding in each of the eight Local Areas to deliver the outcomes as outlined in the criteria. We are looking for lead organisations to work with other local VCS organisations or groups to form arrangements such as partnerships or consortia to deliver the outcomes.

Through this grant the consortia or partnerships will:
• Deliver activities that support the Nottingham Plan.
• Work with a range of organisations including Voluntary and Community Sector, statutory and non-statutory bodies.
• Be knowledgeable of opportunities to draw in further funding streams for the City.
• Be creative and innovative to meet the outcomes identified.
• Provide arrangements to include small localised organisations.
• Demonstrate value for money.

The funded activities will meet one or more of the categories below:

• Children and Young People’s Positive and Targeted Activities
• Employment and Skills Related Support
• Community Centre Associations (The funding will be provided to community organisations/associations to manage current Nottingham City Council local neighbourhood community centres to ensure local community use.)

Further details relating to these categories can be found in point 7.0 Category Specifications (within the Grant Aid Pack).
