The grants will help a wide range of projects from educating students at local schools about the issue of online grooming and exploitation, creating sensory stories, shows and experiences for young people with complex needs and disabilities, befriending services for older people, supporting carers and people with financial concerns, as well as improving the physical and mental health of residents by contributing towards a variety of clubs and activities.
This year, an overall fund of up to £30,000 was available, made up of £23,000 raised by people buying tickets for the Tandridge Together Lottery and £7,000 from the Council’s Small Grants Fund.
In September 2021, we will be inviting local charities and voluntary groups in the Tandridge district to apply for grants. 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.
