There’s still time for other community groups to apply for grants from MAF, a new scheme in which all 70 South Gloucestershire councillors can allocated money to worthy causes in their area.
Applications must be made by March 31. Further information on how to apply is available on the council website www.southglos.gov.uk/maf
Councillors have the option to award all their annual funding to a single organisation or initiative, or divide it among a number of groups.
Robust criteria are in place to ensure funding is allocated appropriately.
