Community groups in Ely can benefit from up to £1,000 of funding for projects that will help make a difference to local people.

Sanctuary Housing’s Grand Ideas Fund is open for applications from charities and community groups in Ely who would benefit from financial support to deliver activities and projects.

Projects must reach Sanctuary residents and successful applications will be for initiatives that fit one or more of Sanctuary’s priorities for the fund: Increasing skills and employability, building connections and reducing isolation, growing neighbourhood pride and community safety, sustainable lifestyles and greener living and helping residents better manage their money.

Sanctuary is looking for applications of up to £1,000 from community and residents groups, registered charities, parish/town councils, schools or social enterprises.

The Grand Ideas Fund has previously helped local charity Pos+Ability to support people living with long-term neurological conditions, through an ongoing programme of exercise and personal development sessions to build mobility, memory and cognitive skills.
