Whitefoot Assembly fund applications now open


This year’s Whitefoot Assembly Fund stands at £15,000, £2,500 of which will be on Councillors' recommendations, with the remaining £12,500 allocated to groups wishing to apply for funding. 

The funding will be allocated as outlined below:

  • 2 projects to be capped at £3,500
  • 4 amounts of up to £500 seed funding for first time projects
  • Remaining projects will be capped at £2,000
The Assembly will choose one of the successful £500 projects to follow from start to finish. This project will provide regular updates at assembly meetings, where the assembly can offer advice as well as help the project in its development. Last year's project Spoken Aspirations is featured here

The guidelines and application form are available to download on the Downham & Whitefoot Interagency website.

Proposals must address one or more of the five ward priorities as well as one or more actions within the action plan, which can be downloaded here.
