Following the cut of ADEC's core funding from ECDC our grants and guarantees scheme is no longer available.
if you are a community group it is worth contacting the District Council to see whether you may be eligible for the East Cambridgeshire Community Fund. The aim of this small community grants scheme is to work in partnership with local communities to provide new and innovative community services and initiatives which develop the quality of life in East Cambridgeshire. http://www.eastcambs.gov.uk/finance/east-cambridgeshire-community-fund
City of Ely Council also run a small grants scheme encouraging applications from voluntary groups and organisations which are considered once each year in September. Please note that Local Government Regulations do not permit the award of grants to individuals.
To simplify the procedure for both applicants and the Council, you are requested to complete an application form, which can be downloaded by using the link below if you wish to apply and to return this together with a copy of the organisations most recent audited accounts or business plan if you are applying for a substantial grant. (£1,000 or over). The closing date for applications is 10.00am on 28th August 2014.
