Do you want your community to get a share of £3000 which will help tackle illegal money lending in Elswick or Benwell and Scotswood?
This money has been taken from loan sharks, and we think it should be spent on addressing the problems of illegal money lending.
The Illegal Money Lending team can provide funding of up to £500 for one-off projects that:
Examples of work being done elsewhere include:
This money needs to target illegal money lending, not legal but high cost lending, and applications need to be received by midday 18 January 2013. Successful applicants will present their projects at an interactive voting event to be held in February 2013. Further information about this event will be shared soon.
Note that grants cannot be made for staffing costs, or to fund existing work.
To ensure that a number of projects can be funded you can apply for up to a maximum of £500 per project. You can submit more than one project but the total per group submission must not exceed £750.
