1

Catford South Local Assembly Funding is open but closing soon – here is what you need to know

Whens the Deadline?
Sunday 30 September 2018, 11pm

How much is up for grabs?
The total fund is £15000
£2500 can be used as Councillors Discretionary funding
The upper limit for organisations to apply for is £2500…
….However if your idea shows exceptional genius and needs a bit more cash to get going, we may consider a bid for more than £2500

Are we blue sky thinking, or is there a theme?
Catford south assembly have decided on 6 priorities or themes. These are broadly:
• Improving the Cultural offer in Catford South
• Increasing opportunities for Older People Catford South Community
• Developing more activities for Children and You People in Catford South
• Improving Catford South for Residents
• Improving the Catford South Environment
• General things that matter to Catford South Residents
Don’t worry , there is more information about these priorities in the guidance notes here: Guidance-Notes-and-important-information-Catford-South-Local-Assembly-Funding-2018-19
WE WILL ALSO CONSIDER ANY APPLICATIONS THAT THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX – AS LONG AS THEY ARE SENSIBLE, PRACTICLE AND DELIVERABLE!

I have a great idea, can I apply?
• Only constituted organisations or community groups can apply.
• If you are a person with a grand plan, you can approach a constituted organisation to be your ‘Umbrella org’ – this will all have to be arranged before applications come in.
• We favour projects that happen directly in the ward – unless you can prove a large number of Catford South-ian’s will benefit and show proof of that.
• Organisations can put in more than one application if they can demonstrate how they will manage multiple projects

Ok, got it! What do I do when applying?
• You must use the correct application form here: 2018-19-Assembly-Fund-Application-Form1
• You must email your applications in to lucy.formolli@lewisham.gov.uk – we cannot accept paper apps unless pre-agreed by the coordinator
• You must ensure that you have received a receipt email for your applications – it is your responsibility to follow this up or you may risk your application going forward
• You must make sure you have your additional documents ready in case they are required
• YOU MUST READ ALL THE GUIDENCE NOTES – THEY TELL YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW! Guidance-Notes-and-important-information-Catford-South-Local-Assembly-Funding-2018-19
• You must MEET ALL DEADLINES

Right let’s get going then….
