We have grants available to support residents living in the HAVA area and to fund groups/ organisations with ideas of how to improve the area or offer positive experiences for the people who live here. Full guidance notes are available for you to check eligibility. We ask every recipient of a grant to complete an evaluation form so we are able learn about the challenges and successes of the funding.
We are available to help you complete these forms and to discuss any questions you might have. Visit the HAVA office or email / phone us for support. The contact us page has all the details you need.
Grants up to £500
Grants are available to individuals who are looking to re -train or return to work and need additional education or experience. They are also available to residents who may be looking to set up their own business.
We don’t offer these grants in isolation. HAVA offer you the support to find the right course or work experience. We can help you with forms or other paperwork and can put you in touch with other agencies if needed.
We ask for some details on a simple form, which we can help you complete.
Grants up to £4000
Grants are available to individuals, community groups or organisations who can demonstrate the funds will benefit the residents in the HAVA area. This could be an idea to improve the look of the area; a project to bring people together; to do some sort of activity together; it could be to specifically work with young people, adults or older people. If you have an idea – ask us & we can help you.
How Grants are decided
When you complete your Grant form use the Guidance Notes document to help you or ask at the HAVA office. If your request fits one of our priorities the form will be submitted the Grants Group. This group meet monthly & review all applications & can make a final decision on the small grants in this meeting. If a large grant meets their requirements they may ask for more information. Once this has been satisfied it will go to the next Board meeting (monthly) for final approval.
When you receive a small or large grant from HAVA we will send you a final evaluation form for completion.
