Progress Housing—Community Investment Fund

Progress_Lytham_Fun_Day_bannerWhen we joined forces with New Fylde Housing , one of our key promises was to substantially increase our funding for activities that benefit our communities. The Community Investment Fund was set up – with a budget of £1.5 million to invest in our communities over the next five years. How to apply for funding -This is a great initiative that is driven by residents and local organisations and the Panel would like to support as many activities as possible. All projects must meet the needs of Progress Housing Groups customers and be delivered in the areas where we have properties The Fundraising Officer also offers training opportunities to community organisations/groups and partners in sourcing and general funding advice and guidance. We endeavour to work in harmony with our local communities and partnerships in assisting and working with them on local projects; and promote partnership working. More information about the funding can be found on the Progress Housing website—http://www.progressgroup.org.uk/about_us/working/community/
