Council offering local community groups funds to take a coach trip
The coach trip scheme for local groups has returned by popular demand!
Hammersmith & Fulham Council has announced it will, once again, be offering groups based in the borough a contribution of up to £300 towards the costs of hiring transport to take their users out on a well-deserved day trip.
“We are committed to supporting local groups that provide valuable community services,” said a spokesman for H&F Council. “We do not want transport costs to be a barrier preventing these groups from taking their members on trips.”
“This scheme helps a variety of different community groups, but has a particular focus on those for older people whose opportunities to get out and about and enjoy sustained periods of social interaction can sometimes be limited.”
In order to be eligible to apply, organisations:
- must be based in H&F and be mostly made up of people living in the borough
- should have a local management committee (of at least 3 members) and have its own governing document
- must be able to show they support residents from all communities
- should have an annual income of less than £10,000.
Top priority will be given to older peoples’ groups which are currently not funded by the council. Groups run by statutory organisations – such as schools, the council or NHS Trusts – are not eligible.
