What are the ‘needs’ in Berkshire?
‘Vital for Berkshire’ goes beyond the statistics to uncover areas and themes where pockets of deprivation can be found, and where local communities are struggling. A safe home, good health and secure employment are interdependent and underpin wellbeing – a key message from Berkshire’s Vital Sign’s Report. ‘Vital for Berkshire’ aims to raise awareness about and raise vital funds to support community groups helping people dealing with issues preventing them from having a safe home, good health and secure employment.
Support for Community Groups
BCF recently asked grant applicants for their feedback on their funding experience with BCF. From the findings from the survey, a huge number of groups reported that they find it difficult to fund essential resources/core costs. So, for this funding round, BCF managed funds will be allocated in grants of up to £10,000 towards running costs for groups working to address the above needs.
