Neighbourhood Improvement Budget

If you have a bright idea that could make a difference to your local community, or know of a great local project that involves Platform residents, you could apply to our Neighbourhood Improvement Budget for funding.

Platform (east)'s Neighbourhood Improvement Budget is a grant fund we offer to support local projects that benefit our communities and neighbourhoods. It can help in a variety of ways – from providing better security lighting to running events to keep young people fit and active.

Any Platform resident or resident group can apply to the Neighbourhood Improvement Budget, either directly or through a member of our staff. Your local Community Engagement Officer will help you apply.

Applications are currently open, and the deadline is December 30. Meetings to discuss funding applications are held quarterly, so if your application misses the current deadline it will be reconsidered at the next meeting.

If you and your neighbours have a project in mind, why not see if our Neighbourhood Improvement Budget can help? Fill in the form below to request a pack, speak to your Community Engagement Officer or call our Contact Centre on 0333 200 7304.
