Meeting offers advice on accessing grants

VOLUNTARY organisations across Hartlepool can learn more about accessing grants at a meeting this week.

Hartlepool Community Forum is due to meet this Thursday, August 2, at the Belle Vue Community Sports and Youth Centre, in Kendal Road, at 10am.

Representatives from The Big Lottery fund will be at the meeting to talk about their Awards for All scheme, which offers grants up to £10,000 to voluntary organisations.

Lots of groups in Hartlepool have already benefitted from the pot of funding.

Free tea and coffee is provided and there is no need to book.

The funding is open to all groups.
