Community Chest

Community projects with the aim of making social housing areas Cleaner, Safer and Greener may be eligible for up to £1,000 of Council funding.

The grants can be used to support a range of projects that will specifically improve amenities in or around social housing areas, including projects with the aim of:

  • Resolving community identified issues
  • Reducing anti-social behaviour around social housing
  • Supporting safety and security measures
  • Increasing wellbeing and mental health of tenants
  • Tackling issues relating to waste management, litter and dog fouling
  • Helping vulnerable groups or individuals
  • Supporting tenants into education, learning and volunteering opportunities.

During the past year, funds we’re raised for multiple projects including improving communal gardens at Bakewell Court in Balderton, organising a spruce up day at South View in Newark and providing tenants with garden tools to grow their own vegetables at De Lacy Court in Ollerton.
