City of York: Community Covenant Grant Funding
On Thursday 8 December City of York Council, the Army, Navy, Royal Air Force, Royal British Legion, reserve forces, veterans, York CVS and other key figureheads joined together to sign a scroll to mark the launch of the York Community Covenant.
- Encourage local communities to support the Armed Forces Community;
- Nurture public understanding and awareness amongst the public of issues affecting the Armed Forces Community;
- Recognise and remember the sacrifices faced by the Armed Forces Community;
- Encourage activities which help to integrate the Armed Forces Community into local life;
- Encourage the Armed Forces Community to help and support the wider community, whether through participation in events and joint projects, or other forms of engagement
- There needs to be a clear demonstrable benefit to Armed Forces Communityand their local community;
- The application is more likely to be successful if the non-Service element of the partnership (e.g. Local Authority, charity or community group or commercial organisation) also commit to incurring expenditure;
- MOD can only provide one off funding rather than ongoing costs.
Outline applications will initially be assessed by a delegated officer from the York and North Yorkshire Community Covenant Partnership, supported by Adam Gray from City of York Council. In terms of submitting bids to the Community Covenant Fund we quickly need to establish a protocol across the City. We urgently need to know who is interested in putting a funding bid forward for consideration and for what purpose, so that we can develop a bidding strategy that ensures the greatest possible impact. There may, for example, be scope to join up bids across the voluntary sector and perhaps to work with public / private sector partners as well.
