The Caird Peckfield Community Fund (formerly the Caird Bardon Community Programme) – Are you Looking for Funding

I received the information below which may be useful to you if you are connected to an organisation that may benefit.

The Caird Peckfield Community Fund (formerly the Caird Bardon Community Programme)

I am contacting all Councillors in the Leeds area to let them know that we are now accepting applications for grant funding.

Due to the change in ownership of the Peckfield landfill site this will be the final round of the Caird Peckfield Community Fund that will be delivered by GrantScape.

The final round of the Fund will provide grants of between £5,000 and £50,000 to fund community and environmental projects located in Leeds Metropolitan District Wards.

Projects will be expected to begin on site during 2014 and be completed before the end December 2015.The closing date for receiving completed applications via our online application system is Wednesday, 12th February 2014 (12 noon). You will receive a funding decision before the end of April 2014.

You can access the online application form on the GrantScape website www.grantscape.org.uk by following the link to ‘Apply for a grant’ and selecting ‘Caird Peckfield Community Fund’. A copy of the full funding criteria is also available to view and download on the website.

Note – the questions on the application form have not been changed. If your group is happy that your scheme meets the revised criteria and you have already started completing an online application form you can continue with this application.

If you would like more information about the Fund, please do not hesitate to contact me. My contact details are as follows:
