Community Grants Funding

The Neighbourhood Engagement Team work closely with the residents of Bury with a focus on empowering local people and enabling them to shape decisions, services and support in their local area. Our Neighbourhood Engagement model covers all six townships of Bury and has a three tiered approach. The first part of our approach involves borough wide digital engagement, using the Bury Directory, where you can access information on local services and activities and One Community, where residents can participate in questionnaires and surveys and share ideas and thoughts. Both of our digital offers are accessible 24hrs a day, 365 days a year.

The second part is township level engagement, which includes Neighbourhood Networking events and our innovative new grant funding model known as 'The Pitch’, which puts communities at the heart of decision making, by giving local people a say and enabling people to make the decisions about how grant funding is applied locally within their community. Finally the third part is how we are engaging people at a ward or neighbourhood level, including our new actions groups, which bring local people, groups and organisations together to develop new idea and drive forward solutions to the issues that matter most to them. There are many action groups already established across Bury but you can work with us within your community and we would love to hear from residents who would like to get involved. For more information or to start an action group contact the at neighbourhood.engagement@bury.gov.uk or tel 01612537455.

Our innovative new approaches to allocating local community grants are empowering locally derived initiatives and ideas and devolving decision making to our people. This offers an asset based approach that recognises and builds on the strengths of our communities and the people living and working within them. This is achieved by using a place based approach that places individuals, families and communities at the heart of what we do.

We are enabling people in Bury to build independence, drive shared decision making and most importantly giving local people a voice, genuine opportunity for co-production and joint delivery of services. As part of the neighbourhood engagement framework, our grant funding allocation is an important way of ‘investing’ in projects delivered by local individuals, families and groups within their neighbourhood to make a difference in their local area.

The current Grant model includes a number of on-going grants and also one off type funding, which are explained below:

    How much and what is the fund?

    Bury Council in conjunction with the previous leader of the council, Rishi Shori has allocated £600,000 to communities to fund community capital projects (nominally £100,000 per Neighbourhood). This is a one off fund to be used over a three year period.

    Criteria

    The criteria is set around improving the lives, health and wellbeing of local people and via an application process. An applicant would have to clearly demonstrate how the Community Capital Fund (previously known as Social Capital Fund) would be used to enable delivery of a project or scheme to meet this criteria.

    Who could apply for funding?

    Any person, community group (constituted or none constituted) or voluntary community and faith organisation (not for religious purposes) in Bury could apply for the funding where it is demonstrated the needs of the criteria are met.


    Please note - Important Information


    Applicants for the Community Capital Fund can apply for up to £10,000 for their project or scheme.

    The Community Capital Fund (previously known as the Social Capital Fund) will only fund individual groups up to £10,000. Therefore, if in year one your group was successful in securing £10,000, you will not be considered this year.

    However, if you have received less than this, you will be able to apply for the balance in year two - for example, if your application last year was for £10,000 and you were awarded only £5000, you will be able to apply for £5,000 this year, for the same or a different project.

    Application Process

    The application process will be open on Tuesday 8th October 2019 and close on the 22nd November 2019 (12 noon) Those successful at the application stage will be put forward to a panel. Following the panel decision applicants would be notified if they were successful or not and if successful how much funding they are awarded. A Service Level Agreement would be drawn up outlining detail of the monies awarded and project deliverables. The neighbourhood engagement team will help support applicants to implement their project where possible and measure the impacts of the project on people’s lives.

    When does the funding run:

    The funding for 2019 is currently underway and application entries have closed. There will be one further round of this in 2020.

    How will our citizens know about what has been funded?

    The Neighbourhood Engagement Team will update this dedicated page on One Community linked to the Bury Directory, council website and partner websites such as the VCFA. This will be titled community grant funding and will host information on grant funding opportunities in Bury that the Council are linked into and also details on those funding applications that were successful.

    Bury Council’s ‘Pitch’ Community Funding was launched in 2017 and is available to constituted and non-constituted groups, special interest groups and residents who are undertaking projects that will contribute to improving the health and well being of local people within their community.

    Projects must be delivered in the area identified for local residents and should be community led and demonstrate that they help people to help themselves and others live a good life. The grant must be spent within 6 months at the very latest but the activities can continue afterwards.

    Who can apply?

    Groups do not need to be constituted, but will need their own group account or nominate a recognised organisation e.g. (Church, Community Centre, School) to act as a banker.

    The Process

    If you have an idea for a project you will be asked to complete an application form with all the relevant information about your project, including how it will benefit the health & well being of local people. If applicable you will then be asked to come and present your project idea to members of the local community at the relevant Pitch event.

    New for Summer 2019 is the inclusion of an online vote, where you will have the opportunity to submit a short 3 minute video about your project, and or a side of A4 describing/showcasing your project, before people are given the opportunity to vote through One Community for their favourite projects ahead of the public Pitch event. By voting online it means you will be unable to vote on the day of The Pitch but will still be more than welcome to attend and network with other groups and members of the public. On the closing day of each event, the chance to cast your vote will be removed as of 12 noon and if you still wish to vote you must attend the event, please check below for more details

    What happens at The Pitch?

    • Applicants present a 3 minute pitch about their project
    • Attendees are asked to mark FIVE projects on the ballot paper (Vote for three in Radcliffe)
    • Votes are counted and results announced at the event

    Who can vote?

    Anyone who lives, works or has an interest in each of our six neighbourhoods are eligible to vote at their respective Pitch event or through the preceding online vote. All groups applying for Pitch funding should actively promote their project idea within their community, to encourage support from local people at the event and the public vote.

    By promoting your project idea you will help the community to better understand what potential local projects are being planned for their areas and encourage support for your project at the Pitch event and online vote.

    By voting online it means you will be unable to vote on the day of The Pitch but will still be more than welcome to attend and network with other groups and members of the public.

    Grant amount:

    Applicants can apply for up to a maximum of £1,500.

    When does the funding run?

    The Pitch funding runs twice each year, one of which taking part around February/March and the other later in the year around September time, dates will be announced here on the community grants funding page.

  • Funding Top Tips

    10 months ago
    Istock 509635876

    Golden Rules

    Make a call

    • Before making a start on your application, call the funder to make sure your project meets their criteria.
    Take time
    • Don’t rush your application. Take time to complete the application carefully, making sure you answer all the questions. A rushed application is likely to be a rejected application.
    Take advice
    • Often funders will provide advice and resources to help you complete the application form. Make sure you read any guidance notes before you start your application. Ask friends or colleagues who may have been involved with similar projects.

    Golden Rules

    Make a call

    • Before making a start on your application, call the funder to make sure your project meets their criteria.
    Take time
    • Don’t rush your application. Take time to complete the application carefully, making sure you answer all the questions. A rushed application is likely to be a rejected application.

    • Often funders will provide advice and resources to help you complete the application form. Make sure you read any guidance notes before you start your application. Ask friends or colleagues who may have been involved with similar projects.
    Take care
    • Quality counts when it comes to writing your bid. Ask someone to proof read your application to check for any errors. You could also ask a ‘critical friend’ to take an independent view of your bid – would they give you the money?
    Think 'outcomes'
    • Most funders will want to know about ‘outcomes’ – what difference will your project make? Don’t confuse this with ‘output’ or what you will actually deliver.
    Evidence 'need'
    • Funders will want to see evidence that there is a need for your project. What statistics and other information can you use to support your case? Is your project in a deprived area? Can you identify a gap in local services for your community?
    Why us?
    • Funders are looking for the biggest possible impact and so will often look favourably on projects that can demonstrate that no other source of funding is available to them. You need to show why your project is the one for them.
    Partnership working
    • Funders will look to see if your project supports or compliments other projects. Demonstrating that you are working in partnership with others will be to your advantage.
    Make milestones
    • Funders will want to see the timescale for your project. Include the key milestones for development in your application so they can see how you intend to deliver it.
    Think 'future'
    • You will be expected to show that you’ve thought about how you will fund the project in the future. They will not be interested in funding a project that folds as soon as the funding ends. Draw up plans to make your project sustainable.

    Good Luck!
