BIG LOCAL SMALL GRANTS AWARD 2016
Nine organisations in SW11 have been awarded a share of the Big Local SW11 Small Grants £6000 fund for 2016.
- Buna Kazoku Karate School
- On Uncommon Ground
- Doris Emmerton Court Residents Association
- ST Peter’s Church
- Sound Minds
- Friend’s of George Potter
- Lightbox Theatre
- Providence House
- Sacred Heart RC School.
Although the awards are relatively small (up to £1000) they can make an enormous difference.
For example St Peter’s Church used £650 to set up a climbing wall project which attracted a very positive response, particularly from young girls in our patch. The young people involved got to learn problem solving, how to collaborate to achieve a desired goal, and experienced the thrill of achieving success – all of which can boost their confidence and potentially lead to other forms of engagement and activity.
Our Small Grants programme is currently being reviewed and we will publish a report on the outputs and outcomes of the programme around December 2016 – watch this space!
