Bid for a grant at the Vauxhall Expo

Does your organisation operate in Kennington, Oval or Vauxhall?
Can it do something really good for this community? Read on……

Two grants of £500 are available to help provide activities or services for the community.

The grants will be determined by people attending the event taking place at the Vauxhall Expo event on 11 September at Spring Gardens, SE11 5HL. From a short list of applications, local people will vote and decide which two projects receive the funding.

Closing date: noon on 4th September, 2010

Application form – email forumkov@gmail.com

Notes: By applying, you accept that grants will be decided by participants at the Vauxhall Expo at the Spring Gardens, Tyers St, London, SE11 5HL on the 11th of September 2010.


When is the deadline for this application?
4th September 2010. We regret that any applications received after this deadline cannot be accepted.

Are there Grant Payment Conditions?
The Council is administering the scheme so their normal Conditions of Grant Aid apply. You must have a bank account or be supported by a larger organisation with a bank account. The project will be monitored to make sure the grant is properly spent and outcomes reported. The winning organisation therefore will have to provide more details before the payment can be made. All staff working with children or access to information about children must have enhanced CRB clearance.

Who can I contact for further information?
Please contact Frances Forrest at forumkov@gmail.com

How do I complete the application form?
We have sent information out via email and in the post. You can complete the form attached to the email on your computer and submit it back to forumkov@gmail.com or return a completed printed form to us in the post leaving enough time to meet the deadline of noon on4th of September, 2010.

What happens after I have sent in my application?
We will read all applications and short list those that will be invited to present at the Vauxhall Expo and the ‘judges’, your local community. We will contact short listed projects to talk about your project in more detail and help with preparations. The votes cast will be counted at the event and the two projects receiving the highest number of votes cast will be the successful recipients of the grant funding (2 x £500 grant).

What type of projects will be funded?

You must demonstrate how your work will benefit at least part of Kennington, Oval and Vauxhall.

What will not be funded?

We will not fund

• Political parties
• Promotion of religious beliefs
• Third party giving organisations
