This year, Leeds Community Foundation are delighted to be working with Northern Gas Networks and Northern Powergrid to enable local organisations and community groups to deliver schemes that tackle issues that are close to their hearts as utility companies – such as affordable warmth and the lack of young people choosing STEM subjects.
Northern Gas Networks and Northern Powergrid see this as an opportunity to build ongoing relationships with organisations, explore further opportunities to provide support, gather case studies and share learning.
The Community Partnering Fund programme is targeted at areas of greatest need. The Fund will provide grants of up to £10,000 to support locally based community organisations with innovative approaches to delivering sustainable initiatives that help broaden Northern Gas Networks and Northern Powergrid’s reach and educate and support communities and individuals.
If you are thinking of applying for the Fund and would like to learn more about the Community Partnering Fund then please join us for a briefing events in Sunderland.
The briefing will include a presentation on the Community Partnering grant programme, application process, an overview previously funded projects, a Q&A session, and networking opportunities.
