Connecting people to funding

Our trail-blazing approach to community development has seen more than £220,000 in grant funding come to local community projects and groups during the 12 months since it was launched. 

Janette Vizard, grants and social value officer for Severn Vale HousingGrants and social value officer, Janette Vizard, is well-connected across Gloucestershire, with her role to find funding for groups and projects to create new opportunities - anything from Job Clubs and IT skills training, to children’s play schemes and sports equipment, to

Janette's expertise is giving a boost to local initiatives in areas where Bromford has properties, with communities in Northway, Priors Park, Churchdown and Brockworth seeing many ideas supported by local people come to life because they have had the advice and support to tap in to available grants. 

If you want to see a local project get off the ground, or need some advice to take your project or community group to the next stage, please get in touch.
