If you volunteer or work with a local cause that’s looking for a much needed funding boost for a specific project or scheme, then you’re in luck – the OneFamily Foundation Community Awards return on the 21st June!
Projects, schemes or initiatives that aim to improve the lives of people in the UK have the chance to gain up to £5,000, £10,000 or £25,000, with up to 32 winners across four varied categories:
- Health, Disability & Social Care – Projects that help people with mental health problems, learning or physical disabilities or those in respite care
- Lifelong Learning – Projects that encourage people of all ages to learn something new and develop their skills
- Active Living – Projects that help people of all ages to enjoy a fitter, happier lifestyle
- Community Groups – Projects that help to make a positive difference for those in the community
You’ll need to be an OneFamily customer to nominate a project for a Community Award, but don’t worry if you’re not – OneFamily has over 2 million customers, so you can get involved by finding a one who can nominate a project on your behalf.
Ask your friends, family and colleagues if they are OneFamily customers and if they’d be able to get behind your project.
Download this free toolkit to help with your nomination – Tips for completing your Community Award nomination.
You can learn more about the Community Awards, or start your project nomination from 21st June 2017, on the OneFamily Foundation website.
