Subject: Action in Rural Sussex

Action in rural Sussex has 1 million available to spend across ALL of East Sussex, West Sussex and Brighton and Hove and with only a year left for grants to be spent we are encouraging groups to apply to the Local Network Fund while they still can!  

The Local Network Fund is aimed at projects benefiting children, young people and/or their parents and carers. Locally managed, voluntary, community or self-help groups can all apply for up to 7000 to run projects or activities which promote new opportunities. 

The fund is particularly aimed at young people who would not otherwise be able to take part in an activity or event. This may be for a number of reasons, including, a disability, financial circumstances, language or cultural issues or because they live in a rural area. 

Schools cannot apply as they are official but outside groups working with schools can.

So if any of SEFAN group members  are doing things with kids/youth inside or outside school then they can apply.
When the money is used up  the scheme stops.
