Grants up for grabs for community projects

COMMUNITY groups in Derbyshire have been invited to apply for grants of up to £1,000.

The cash is aimed at helping community organisations with great ideas who need a funding injection to get things off the ground. The money can be used to fund initiatives that improve communities, said a spokesman.

Derbyshire County Council is offering the Community Action Grants and says applications are considered every three months with the next deadline January 27, 2012.
