Community Impact Bucks is working with Bucks County Council and the Beeches Local Area Forum (LAF) on a Participatory Budgeting process.
The Beeches LAF; which brings together elected members and other stakeholders in the local area; have £10,000 that they would like community and voluntary groups to apply for a share of to help them to run projects that benefit local communities. As this is a participatory budgeting exercise, ultimately the successful projects will be voted for by those who live within the local community.
The projects that apply can be fully funded by the LAF, although it is preferred that there is match funding in order to help the project attract additional resources and increase coverage and impact of delivery. The maximum that any one project can apply for is £5,000. There is no minimum amount.
The projects must meet one or more of the identified local priorities of the Beeches LAF (click here to see information flyer); and the project must benefit people within the Beeches LAF area. The Beeches LAF area comprises of the following communities: Burnham, Dorney, Farnham Royal, Stoke Poges, and Taplow. Projects that will have an impact across a number of these areas will be looked upon favorably.
You can obtain an application form by clicking here.
The deadline for submitting your application is Friday 15th February 2013. The application form does list the return address as the locality services team at Bucks County Council, but for the purposes of this funding it would be helpful if you could return your completed forms to Community Impact Bucks.
