New Videos Show the Power of Community Grants

Posted on 17 October 2019

Did You Know?

As part of the Engaging Communities project the South West Peak Landscape Partnership provides small grants of between £500 to £10,000 for eligible projects that address one or more of our project objectives (listed here). The Community Grants scheme funds up to 50% of the total project costs and groups need to be able to provide match funding (from other fundraising and in-kind contributions) for their projects. South West Peak staff provide support for communities to design and implement community projects and also to apply for funding, both from the Partnership and from other funding organisations as well.

Recipients of community grants are decided by a Community Grants Panel. This panel is composed of volunteers who are knowledgeable about the area and who are interested in contributing to the aims of the project.

Looking for ideas for a community project? Why not check out these new videos produced with support from the Community Grants Scheme and the National Lottery Heritage Fund:

Filming the history and folktales of the South West Peak: This project was developed by Peak in the Past. This is the first film about some of the shorter tales with fabulous views of the South West Peak landscape.

Nature based integration: This is a project developed by Asha (who work to promote social inclusion for asylum seekers and refugees). This short film shows how much the participants enjoyed the project.
