Stradbroke Charitable Trust
I am the Chairman of the above Trust. We have had Grants to build a Surgery in the village of Stradbroke.
We have also received grants to provide fitness tracks, footpaths to allow safe walks,and bought a 6 acre field for allotments, (all grant aided) and many other projects to help the whole area.
That sounds fantastic for your village.
There are an amazing number of grants available to communities and individual groups.
Some are listed in the Community Grants grants section of this website.
You can also register with Funding Central to receive regular updates on funding for community groups.
