A CASH injection of £500 is up for grabs for groups across the Bognor Regis area.

The Arun Wellbeing and Health Partnership (AWHP) small grants scheme is offering grants of up to £500 for voluntary, community and charity groups in the district.

Paul Wotherspoon, Arun’s cabinet member for community services said: “These grants really help support voluntary, charity and community groups in the district and the valuable work and support they provide to residents.”

There is an easy to follow, one-stage application process for organisations whose activities promote or support one or more of the AWHP priorities.

This may include providing information and activities, promoting the prevention of ill-health, improving mental wellbeing, providing services for older people, and working with families, young people and children on a range of lifestyle issues. For further information, call Claire Dower on 01903 737862 or Joy Bradbury-Ball on 01903 737855.

The next deadline for submissions is Friday, October 24, and applications will be considered by an appraisal panel towards the end of November.
