The construction group’s Esh Communities scheme has launched and offers organisations of all shapes and sizes grant funding of up to £1,000.
Supported by the Esh Charitable Trust the scheme calls for groups with innovative ideas about tackling community issues to come forward.
Groups that can demonstrate their ideas are aligned with at least one of Esh Group’s core values are encouraged to apply for the funding.
Those core values are:
• To improve the quality of life for local residents
• To support disadvantaged or vulnerable communities
• To increase prospects of becoming employed
• Promoting equality by engaging minority and hard to reach groups
Esh Communities was launched in 2012 and has so far supplied more than £140,000 to community groups.
Last year more than £40,000 worth of funding was given in grants to 39 projects across the North East, North West, Yorkshire and Scotland.
Groups should apply before the closing date on January 27 via the Esh Group website to apply click here
