Active Notts, Funding, News

Nottinghamshire County Council – Local Communities Fund reopens for capital projects from Monday 2 October 2023 to Friday 24 November 2023.

The Capital Programme is designed to contribute to improvements of facilities or purchase assets that support community access and improve health and well-being. Eligible organisations can apply for one-off Capital grants up to a maximum of £20,000 per organisation in any funding year.

Applications for Capital funding should have in place at least 50% match funding and should show how the proposed project:

  • Helps to address local priorities e.g. improving access to new or existing services such as sports and leisure, protecting the environment, reducing loneliness, improving physical and mental health
  • Improves local places and spaces that are important to communities
  • Brings people together and involves them in the design and implementation
  • Helps to address climate and environmental change and/or minimises any negative impact on the environment.

Examples of how the Capital funding could be used include:

  • Improvements to facilities that support community access and/or to improve health and well-being
  • Improvements to sporting facilities which help to improve wellbeing and access for all.
  • New outdoor play equipment (including accessible outdoor equipment) to provide an exciting and safe play area for local children and families, offering opportunities for physical activity and community interaction in an open, public space.
  • Green / horticultural improvements to open spaces such as the development of an ‘all year round’ community garden for the benefit of all members of the community.
