Applications are now open for the OneCity Trust Main Grants Programme 2016/17:
In the OneCity trust’s own words:
“OneCity’s focus is on innovative projects and initiatives that effectively address social exclusion through partnership working. Wherever possible, OneCity Trust seeks to encourage the active involvement of people in sectors of society that do not normally work together.”
Grants between £5000 and £10000 are available, and the main criteria for awards relate to community connectedness and civic inclusion.
Closing date for applications is 29th April 2016
Lothian Community Health Initiatives’ Forum (LCHIF) Members work with diverse populations across the city of Edinburgh.
Many of the member’s activities would meet the requirements for the OneCity Trust fund, so do consider whether your organisation might make an application.
If you’re working with City of Edinburgh Council tenants or in an area with lots of council homes, do mention this is in your application for consideration by the Fund’s partner.
