Next round of the Better Derbyshire Dales Fund

The Better Derbyshire Dales Fund is still going strong thanks to the commitment for this financial year at least – from the Derbyshire Dales District Council, Derbyshire County Council Public Health and North Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group.

Last financial year we received 65 applications over the four rounds and made 43 awards varying in size from a couple of hundred pounds to a few thousand pounds. These larger capital awards helped to improve community facilities such as Grindleford Pavilion, Cromford Community Centre, Hathersage Memorial Hall, Baslow Sports Pavilion, Matlock Cricket Club and The Grand Pavilion Matlock Bath.

Our next round closes on Friday 10th August 2018. Applicants can apply for up to £1,000 towards revenue costs and up to £5,000 for capital costs. We are particularly looking for applications that can demonstrate a health benefit to children and families or to older people, or that promote good mental health and emotional well-being in general.

You can download a form and guidelines from our website or if you would prefer a paper copy please call us and we will post one out to you. Telephone: 01629 812154.

There are further rounds this financial year in November 2018 and February 2019.
