Applications encouraged for Broxtowe Good Ideas Fund

19/01/23 - With just over a week to go to apply, community and voluntary organisations in the Borough are encouraged to make a bid for support from the ‘Good Ideas Fund’.

The Council is looking to allocate up to £300,000 this financial year. 

The Good Ideas Fund was launched as part of the £2.5 million funding that Broxtowe Borough Council has secured over the next three years from the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

This will enable local community, charitable, voluntary and other business support organisations to request grants of between £5,000 and £15,000 for projects or services that will benefit local communities and businesses in Broxtowe.  The fund must deliver benefits such as arts and heritage events in town centers, strengthen groups who are dealing with the cost of living crisis and promote active travel and participation in active recreation. All groups who help local communities or can boost businesses and have a good idea should make an application.   

Portfolio Holder for Economic Development and Asset Management, Councillor Tim Hallam said: "Many groups and organisations have benefitted from EU funding over the years. Now that this money isn't available to us, it's important that people get what they can from the SPF. If you have an idea that will benefit your community then please apply without delay."

More information on how to apply for the Good Ideas Fund can be found at Alternatively, Groups can phone: 0115 917 7777 and apply over the phone. Expressions of interest are open until 31 January 2023.

This project is funded by the UK Government's Shared Prosperity Fund.
