Community First

In 2011 the Government made a total of £84k available to be spent by March 2015 on grants for activities and projects that benefit Ovenden Ward.
A Community Panel recommends projects to the Community Development Foundation (CDF) for funding and to date 12 local projects have received funding at a total value of £26,589.
The CDF will not let panels have money for years 3 and 4 of their allocation unless they produce a community plan by March 2013.
A Community Plan will help everyone understand a community and what is important to them.
The Ovenden Community First Panel want to consult with as many groups and people as possible in the area to ensure that the plan represents different views from the community.
