Applications to our Local Projects Fund are welcome from individuals and informal groups that are supporting people impacted by the outbreak.
Current examples include a local pharmacist who has been making hand sanitiser for use free of charge by care staff, shop workers and volunteers delivering food parcels and is now seeking funds to produce more.
The District Council’s Local Projects Fund enables Derbyshire Dales District Councillors to support community led initiatives in the area they represent.
Each year £900 is allocated to each Councillor to grant aid to projects or initiatives in their Ward that will benefit the local communities and be valuable to the area.
The Fund provides for a wide degree of flexibility and can be used to support one off projects, ongoing activities and the development of sustainable longer term projects.
Applicants have to be based within the Derbyshire Dales and you can find more information and an online application form here.
