The Tandridge Together Community Fund invited local organisations, which operate in the Tandridge district, to apply for small grants in 2020 and more than 40 local organisations applied. In January 2021, the fund awarded over £22,670 in grants of up to £2,000 to local organisations to help fund initiatives which will directly benefit residents. Local organisations who were awarded a grant are:
- Bletchingley Skills Centre
- Caleidoscope CIC
- Caterham and Warlingham Citizens Advice Bureau
- Creative Community Hurst Green
- Crossroads Care Surrey
- Outwood Parish Council
- Oxted Young Persons Theatre
- Stripey Stork
- Tandridge Voluntary Action
- The Clockwork Charitable Trust
- The Kezi Silverstone Trust
- Surrey Hills Society
- The Breck Foundation
- The Ryan MS Therapy Unit
- Viewpoint Centre CIO
- The Woodhouse Centre
The grants will help a wide range of projects from supporting carers, helping young adults with disabilities, working with vulnerable children and students at local schools, befriending services for older people, offering people with financial concerns access to confidential advice as well as improving the physical and mental health of residents by contributing towards a variety of clubs and activities.
Thanks to the success of the Tandridge Together Lottery, which launched in March 2018, just over £20,000 was available to local organisations. 10p from every ticket sold goes directly into the Tandridge Together Community Fund for the Council to distribute in small grants.
Later this year, we will be inviting local charities and voluntary groups in the Tandridge district to apply for grants which will be awarded by the Tandridge Health and Wellbeing Board in January 2022. The details will be made available on this page, we will issue a press release and post on our social media accounts and we will notify all local good causes registered on our Tandridge Together Lottery.
