Colchester Borough Homes is inviting local groups and community projects to apply for support through the latest round of its Community Fund.

The Community Fund makes grants and awards to local charities and community groups throughout the Borough of Colchester.

All monies awarded are considered by our Residents Panel to select the projects they feel would be most beneficial to their local community. Applications for the current funding round for this year is set to close on 30 September 2019.

The Community Fund supports the values of Colchester Borough Homes in particular, showing our commitment to connecting local Colchester communities.

Throughout each calendar year the Community Fund helps distribute £40,000 of funding to local projects and organisations.

The CBH Community Fund supports the local community by making small grants and awards to local charities and community groups throughout Colchester. The latest Community Fund recipients include Colchester Food Bank, Colchester Gateway and Carers FIRST.

Colchester Borough Homes Chief Executive Gareth Mitchell said: “The Community Fund is a great opportunity for local organisations and charities to receive funding for the excellent projects and services that they provide, which bring a real benefit to our communities.
