New small grants for residents’ groups

Rotherham Federation of Tenants and Residents (Rother Fed) has been given funding from Rotherham Council to support local tenants and resident associations (TARAs).

Up to £200 is available for initial grants to help groups get up and running or for those TARAs who are new to membership of RotherFed.

They can also access free support to help publicise and run initial meetings and develop a constitution.

Maintenance grants of up to £200 are available for established groups which have been up and running for at least a year.

Groups can apply every year for this grant, and are required to have a financial health check to access this funding.

Application forms and details of financial support to pay for a financial health check are available by writing to Rother Fed, Springwell Gardens Community Centre, Eastwood View, Rotherham, by calling 01709 368515 or emailing info@rotherfed.org

Application forms can also be downloaded at www.rotherfed.org.uk
