Local organisations that believe they are aligned with the objectives of EGMEL (see Home) are invited to apply for consideration for a grant. The closing date for such applications is 30th April, and EGMEL will respond by the end of May, with payment in June.
Preferably applications should be for capital equipment, rather than revenue.
It is unlikely that grants will exceed £5,000.
EGMEL work with Mid Sussex Voluntary Action who can assist with applications if necessary.
Please email email@example.com with details of why you believe your organisation should be considered.
