The next deadline for receipt of applications to this fund is March 1, although a short extension may be available with prior agreement.

Small not for profit community groups that promote health and wellbeing for the residents of Horncastle (principal area of benefit) and surrounding district of East Lindsey (wider area of benefit) can apply and the scheme has previously provided financial support to Horncastle Swimming Club to help train volunteers; Barnes Wallis Academy Young Carers for activities; Horncastle Luncheon Club for adaptations and the Stanhope Hall for acoustic improvements to the community venue.

The panel is also keen to hear from individuals who feel isolated or lonely because they cannot access a local services due to financial constraints, or whose health would 
be improved by having a specific piece of equipment (not funded by statutory bodies).

The fund has previously paid for the cost of swimming activities for a family whose child has a disability; for a new bed for an older person with severe health issues and mobility aids.

Grants of £13,000 are made annually with up to £2,000 available to community groups or £500 for individuals.

To be eligible you must be a not for profit volunteer led group that has a governing document, accounts, bank account and relevant policies and procedures.
