Community groups in the Calder Valley are being encouraged to apply for a slice of the £5,000 Locala Community Fund 2016.

Grants of between £100 and £1,000 are available to help fund local initiatives, projects and groups across Calderdale.

Locala Community Partnerships, a social enterprise providing NHS community healthcare across West Yorkshire, set up the fund four years ago as part of its commitment to supporting communities it serves. So far, more than £35,000 has been awarded to groups ranging from food banks to allotment schemes and scouting groups.
