Community Grants Fund
Longhurst Group's Community Grants Fund has been set up to support charitable groups and not-for-profit organisations in the communities we serve.
In the first round of funding charities, social enterprises and not-for-profit organisations were invited to apply for grants of £5,000 to support work that aligns with our Improving Lives 2025 strategy, which aims to support people’s health and wellbeing and economic resilience.
We’re delighted to have launched our Community Grants Fund, which will help support and bolster the fantastic work of various groups that work tirelessly to improve the lives of people across our operational area.”
Investing in our communities
The Fund has been launched by our Community Investment Team, which has carefully selected causes from across our operational area and invited them to apply for the funding.
Applications were assessed by a team of colleagues drawn from across the Group with funding being distributed to the chosen organisations.
The money was awarded to projects or activities that benefit a local community in which we operate and help support some the most vulnerable members in society.
While entries for this round of funding has now closed, the Community Grants Fund will return later in the year.
