create additional volunteering opportunities following funding from Central Government via
the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF).

Grants from £100 to £1,500 are available for Voluntary and Community Sector projects to
address a local community need and support the Council’s vision to make West
Northamptonshire a great place to live, work, visit and thrive.

The funding is available for new or existing projects or services in West Northamptonshire
which create additional volunteering opportunities. This can be for one-off events or an
extended number of times such as weekly, monthly, or as and when required.

Registered charities, voluntary or community groups, constitutionalised clubs, or not-forprofit organisations which operate within the geographical area of West Northamptonshire
Council and meet the needs of local residents are invited to submit an expression of interest

Cllr David Smith, WNC’s Cabinet Member for Community Safety and Engagement, and
Regulatory Services, said: “The Voluntary and Community Sector are often the unsung
heroes who provide vital services to our communities and we’re delighted to be able to offer
the opportunity to apply for this fund.

“These grants will enable organisations to recruit new volunteers and continue their valuable
work. So, if you fit the criteria, fill out an expression of interest form or get in touch with our
Grants Team to find out more.”

Further information and the full criteria for applications can be found on the WNC website
and in the Council’s Community Funding Grants Framework.
