Community groups or those with an idea for a community project or event have until Friday, September 14 to apply for funding of up to £10,000.

That is the next deadline for applications for the South Kesteven Community Fund.

A new, more simple, application form has been created in a bid to make the process of applying for grants up to £2,000 even easier.

The South Kesteven District Council fund covers one-off costs of between £200 and £5,000 for community events and between £500 and £10,000 for community projects in South Kesteven.

Lincolnshire Community and Voluntary Service (LCVS) offers guidance and support surrounding the application process.

For hints and tips on applying, application forms and more details about the fund and projects it has supported in the past, see: our South Kesteven Community Fund page and LCVS news pages
