Better Local voluntary sector organisation, Derbyshire Dales CVS, is administering several of Derbyshire Dales District Council’s small grants – these include the Village Hall, Arts Development, Band Concerts, Play Development, Open Churchyards, Car Parking and Community grant schemes.

The Better Derbyshire Dales Fund will award grants to support the work of new or existing community groups or organisations that are working within the Derbyshire Dales and are in need of capital or revenue funding.

Derbyshire Dales District Cllr Joanne Wild says:

“We are looking forward to working together to ensure the Better Derbyshire Dales Fund has as wide a reach as possible. One of the benefits to working with the CVS is that where the Better Derbyshire Dales Fund cannot provide any financial support or only part financial support to a project, the CVS is well placed to advise applicants on how and where to look for other funding sources.”

The Better Derbyshire Dales Fund will support organisations or specific projects that aim to develop or strengthen communities and/or people’s health and well-being. We are also interested in supporting less popular causes and work that supports disadvantaged and marginalised sections of the community.

The grants-scheme also includes money from North Derbyshire CCG and Derbyshire County Council Public Health. To that end a proportion of the grants will be awarded to community groups doing something that has a health and well-being benefit.
