A total of £10,000 in funding from a housing association is available for local community groups.

The Your Moorlands Housing Group's Tenant Scrutiny Panel is due to allocate £10,000 to good causes in the local area.

Community groups are invited to apply for up to £1,000 to support projects that improve the lives of people across Staffordshire Moorlands and High Peak.

This is the fourth year that the Community Projects Fund has been in operation and £35,000 in total has been allocated to worthwhile projects to date, with 60 local groups being supported to date.

Groups who have been successful in previous years are welcome to re-apply.

Gavin McAlister, Community Projects Officer for Your Moorlands, said: "We see at first hand the brilliant work being done by community and voluntary groups in our communities and we are delighted to be able to support their work again this year.

"We have supported some great projects in the past and would like to hear from both these and new applicants this time round."

A wide range of local groups from across Staffordshire Moorlands have received support from the fund over the past three years, with recent highlights including funding for Moorlands Radio to purchase outside broadcasting equipment, support for a table tennis club in Whiston, and a grant for The Beatrice Charity to provide canal boat trips for children with disabilities.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on June 16. Priority will be given to projects which help achieve the Your Housing Group Vision of "transforming your lives and your communities".

For full details or an application form contact Gavin McAlister on 01538 380 615 or gavin.mcalister@yourhousinggroup.co.uk.
