Colchester Borough Homes Community Initiative Fund 2021

Colchester Borough Homes (CBH) has launched the first round of its Community Initiative Fund for 2021.

The Community Initiative Fund provides a total £40,000 of funds across three rounds during the year. Groups and organisations in Colchester are encouraged to apply for a share of the funding. They must demonstrate how their services and initiatives can offer support to CBH’s tenants and leaseholders and also outline how they benefit the wider community.

Last year, funding was provided to a total of 22 local groups including Greenstead Community Centre, Colchester Anti-Loo Roll Brigade, Community 360 Transport Scheme, Age Concern and Colchester Christians Against Poverty.

Applications for the first round of funding should be submitted by 14 May 2021.

Colchester Borough Homes Chief Executive, Gareth Mitchell said: “I’m delighted that our Community Initiative Fund is returning to support local groups who make a big difference to the lives of our tenants and leaseholders.

Last year, the funding went to a variety groups who supported residents through the pandemic. While the Covid-19 situation is improving across the nation, there’s still some uncertainty within our communities about the challenges we face this year. Local groups and organisations play a big part in providing reassurance to residents that support is available, if it’s ever needed. I encourage any local organisation who can make a difference to apply.”

Along with the Community Initiative Fund, CBH actively supports and funds local organisations throughout the year. These partnerships provide tenants and leaseholders with the reassurance that support is always available for a variety of needs. Find out more here.
