As a number of groups have been in touch seeking funding for various projects, there are a number of routes to suggest to people (beyond asking their District Councillors about a Ward Grant). Thanks to Alex Sansom from F&HDC for the below:

If the event is a community project, then you may be interested in attending the “Meet the Funders” event on 13th September at Three Hills Sports Park. This is an annual event organised by FHDC that brings The Lottery, Kent Community Foundation, Arts Council, Sport England and other funders to enable local groups and organisations to have 121 advice and guidance. A kind of ‘speed dating with funders’ event.

To book a place on “Meet the Funders”, please email Sarah Thomas at sarah@sarahthomas.org.uk by 12 noon on Monday 11 September. Places are limited, so early booking is recommended. This event is only open to organisations and community groups working in the Folkestone and Hythe District.

Also, the National Lottery are increasing their Awards for All upper limit to £20,000 so that may be an option National Lottery Awards for All England | The National Lottery Community Fund (tnlcommunityfund.org.uk).

Another funding option tto consider is the Crowd Fund Kent scheme which is open now. See the details here: https://www.spacehive.com/movement/crowdfund-kent/about . FHDC have the option to contribute a small amount to projects / campaigns in our District subject to meeting our criteria.

Finally, Kent Community Foundation may also be worth a look Funding Available for Local Charities - Funding Organisation (kentcf.org.uk)
