Funding Boost for Community Groups

DATE PUBLISHED: 23 June 2022

The Rykneld Homes Neighbourhood Improvement can provide funding to your community group to help deliver activities or provide equipment to bring about a positive impact in the community.

The Neighbourhood Improvement Budget has provided funding to some great community initiatives to allow them to provide support, reduce isolation, promote a sense of community and improve the local area.

Here are the details of some recent successful applications to our Neighbourhood Improvement Budget:

Kenning Park Forest School

Kenning Park Forest School provide weekly sessions to Elective Home Educator families and pre school children as well as opening to the wider community during the school holidays  and after school in the form a forest school. The group has been established for three and a half years and provide a safe environment for children to learn about their local woodland and the environment from a fully qualified forest school leader. The group is held at Kenning Park at Holmgate.

The group applied for funding for equipment, tools and a mud kitchen to allow the group to continue to provide the sessions. The sessions are offered free of charge and help to nurture relationships, support the local community and promote woodland conservation.

Dronfield 2gether

Dronfield 2gether has been established for 7 years and applied to our Neighbourhood Improvement Budget for funding to provide quarterly community services and support events. Dronfield 2gether work with a number of organisations to showcase the services and community support available to residents of Dronfield and the surrounding area.

The events are primarily aimed at older people in the area but everyone is welcome to attend. We were able to provide funding to support the June 2022 event held at Dronfield Civic Centre. The event aimed to combat social isolation and and raise awareness of local services to help improve people's health and well-being.

Killamarsh over 60s Group

Killamarsh over 60s applied to the Neighbourhood Improvement Budget to help towards the cost of a trip for 38 of their members to travel to Nottingham for a trip on Trent River for a riverboat cruise.

The trip aimed to reduce isolation and offer members an opportunity to socialise whilst encouraging a sense of community and well-being.

Stonebroom Community Volunteer Group

Stonebroom Community Volunteer Group applied for funding from the Neighbourhood Improvement Budget to help towards the cost of a community bus trip to the seaside. The funding will allow the group to offer to subsidise the cost of a coach to take residents of Stonebroom to Cleethorpes for the day during the school summer holidays.

The group aims to bring the community together, foster new friendships and promote community spirit.

If this trip is successful, the group hopes to arrange a further subsidised trip to Lincoln Christmas Market later in the year.
