WDH Community Grants available now

Published 13 August 2018

Community groups across Wakefield District are encouraged to apply for a WDH Community Grant of up to £1500 between 6 August- 14 September.

WDH is inviting applications from local community groups or voluntary clubs to boost existing services, buy equipment or pay for an event. The aim is to increase community spirit and enhance the quality of life for local people.

Last year one of the many groups that benefited from the scheme was the Balne Lane Yoga Club in Wakefield. The group was awarded a community grant to help towards the cost of running the classes.

Wendy Mitchell, Yoga group leader said: “We want to say more than thank you for this generous donation. We’re all retired and of all different abilities and we provide a class that is welcoming, easily accessible and affordable, as well as offering all of the health benefits that come with it. This grant made it possible to keep going.”

WDH can provide help to complete the application form if needed. For further information visit http://www.wdh.co.uk/OurCommunities, alternatively call 01977 724601 or email neighbourhoodpanels@wdh.co.uk.
