Forest Hill assembly fund 2017–18

The assembly fund is a budget allocated to each ward to meet the local assembly priorities. The fund may also be used as seed funding to attract other sources of finance.

How much is available?

There is £12,500 available and the maximum amount that you can apply for £2,500.

What can it be spent on?

The money could be used to start up a project, support a group to develop new activities, or support a larger project that has secured funding from other sources.

The projects must also aim to tackle the priorities that have been identified by residents, community groups and local businesses:

  • Youth engagement and provision – we are looking for activities that will appeal and support new and existing schemes for young people. These could include those that are art, music, drama and sports based as well as ideas around exciting intergenerational projects.
  • Making Forest Hill more attractive – we are looking for proposals that will help to keep Forest Hill streets clean and appealing. This could include the planting of trees and flowers or a proposal that would increase street art or improve an area.
  • Community events – we are looking for proposals around events that include celebrations, such as Christmas, or events that engage residents and local groups by offering education and information as well as being fun.
  • Supporting local traders – we are looking for proposals that could support and promote Forest Hill as a vibrant town centre and the Kirkdale area for local businesses.
