Charities across the county can benefit from grants up to £50,000 each, to tackle housing issues in their local communities.

The application process for the Nationwide Building Society Community Grants programme is now open for grants and closes on Friday 7th December 2018.

Community housing projects and charities are being urged to put their case forward as Nationwide - the UK’s biggest building society - makes funding available to help make a difference to communities across Kent and Medway.

The Society is inviting applications for grants of up to £50,000 that have the potential to strengthen communities by supporting the most vulnerable with housing needs. Projects could range from finding new approaches to increasing the supply of housing, positively impacting upon homelessness or by reinventing renting for both tenants and landlords.

To discuss your application please contact Natalie Smith via 01303 815 159 or natalie@kentcf.org.uk

Apply here before 5pm on 7th December 2018.

It's great having a foundation that empowers organisations and charities in our community to make real positive differences and changes!
