‘First Steps’ funding is available to support small community groups to develop Community Action Plans to improve their neighbourhood. It is aimed at communities that are just starting along the path of community action. As part of the funding programme volunteers have the opportunity to attend training workshops and learning events. A package of support and grants of £2,500 will be open for applications for interested areas from 1 April 2015.   Find out more from http://mycommunity.org.uk/programme/first-steps/. CDF in partnership with Locality and delivery associates are running the First Steps programme.
