The Co-operative Community Trust Could Help Your Community
The project must address an issue within the community. Of course, if you are on this blog then you are interested in animals. If I were to do a project which would be of long-term benefit to the community then it would no doubt involve them in one way or another. I think it would probably be along the lines of how animals can help people with mental illness to recover and improve the quality of their lives.
Something as simple as petting a cat can have an enormous benefit which then gets passed on to society in general. Of course, your own project does not have to involve animals but it should be innovative in the way it approaches and tackles community based issues.
Sure enough, too, it has to support cooperative ideals and values. There are so many worthy projects going on in the UK at the moment and one issue they always face is funding. With help from the Co-operative Community Fund you may well be able to focus on the project itself and get on with the important job of helping to improve your community.
If you are involved in a project which you think fits this particular bill, or know someone who is, follow the link below to learn more about how to apply for a grant.
