Get Living’s Inspiring Communities Fund, supported by the East End Community Foundation (EECF), has released a new round of funding which will continue to support community-led groups local to East Village, the former Athletes’ Village.
Since it was set up in 2015, the Fund has awarded over £140,000 to more than 50 groups. Donations have been made to a variety of programmes, from netball and basketball clubs to choirs, theatre groups to children’s arts classes.
This long-standing fund focuses on supporting not-for-profit organisations, charities and community groups local to and surrounding, East Village, Get Living’s first and largest build-to-rent neighbourhood.
Grants are available to groups in E15, E20 and E9 postcodes, which covers much of Stratford and Hackney Wick. Organisations can apply for up to £3,000 worth of funding under the themes of health & wellbeing, people & communities, and arts & culture.
Local organisations are encouraged to visit https://eastendcf.org/newham-grants/ and apply for funding before 12noon on 22 February 2021.
