The latest round of the Rossendale Community Fund has been launched and local organisations are invited to apply for a grant from the Fund before the deadline of 14 October.

The Rossendale Community Fund was created by Rossendale Borough Council in partnership with the Community Foundation for Lancashire to offer grants to support projects that help families, children and young people in Rossendale engage in community activities and learning.

Grants of up to £1000 are available for applications that enable families and young people aged up to the age of 25 to flourish, learn and develop skills or knowledge.  This includes education, training, sports development, arts and culture activities and also play provision for younger children.

For more information on the new grant scheme and an application form, see http://www.lancsfoundation.org.uk/funds/rossendale-community-fund  or contact Community Foundation for Lancashire on 0151 232 2444.
