At South West Water we believe in the value of togetherness. Never has it been more important to celebrate being a part of a south west community that comes together to do good for the environment, the places that we live and for each other. The Neighbourhood Fund is our way of contributing to the celebration, where we can not only help realise projects across our service areas but be a part of the journey. Through our fund we aim to be the best next door neighbours; listening to our communities stories, getting hands on with projects and playing our part in creating a south west community that we are proud to be a part of. The types of projects we fund … 1. Protect nature and the environment for the benefit of community health and well-being 2. Provide new opportunities for people to learn and develop 3. Assist local projects which bring communities together, virtually or physically – when safe to do so 4. Support the upkeep of local neighbourhood centres and facilities to keep communities strong If your project is located within our Bournemouth service area we would love to get on board. ------ Applying for funding on ActionFunder is a bit different. Here’s the process: sign up, register your organisation and post a project you want funding for. Your project will automatically match with any funds you meet the criteria for (grant amount, location, focus area). If you want to apply for this fund, make sure your project meets the criteria. Your project will remain live on the platform (ready to match with new funds) until you successfully win funding. ActionFunder’s all about saving you time so that you can get on with what matters: community action.
