Hello Everyone

 Applications are still needed to provide a good choice of projects for the people of Leith.  Making an application gives the opportunity to get a grant of up to £1,000 for a Leith project.  But, it does more than that.  Applicant groups / organisations become part of the £eith decides publicity which promotes the groups and organisations involved.  Posters are displayed in libraries as well as information going out on the Neighbourhood Partnership website and social media.  However, The Leith Event in February attracts hundreds of local people, providing valuable networking opportunities and enables participating applicants to recruit new participants, members or volunteers.

 The decision is made on the day of the event (7 February) for projects to be completed by 31 August.  So good timing for any Spring and/or Summer 2015 events or projects.  Projects who have been made awards in the past have benefitted children, young people, older people, families as well as people vulnerable for a number of reasons.  There have been a wide range of projects involving the arts, such as music, drama, dance and painting; the environment such as gardening and clean up campaigns; fun activities such as imaginative play, camping, sailing and day trips; skills training for young people and jobseekers; support for people with physical disabilities or mental health issues.  And more……..

 So spread the word and get those talented and capable Leithers involved.  See the website http://www.edinburghnp.org.uk/neighbourhood-partnerships/leith/about/%C2%A3eith-decides/  to download an easy to complete application and easy to understand guidelines.

 Applications to be in by 28 November 2014.  This can be e-mailed toLoraine.duckworth@edinburgh.gov.uk (hard copy with signatures may need to be provided at a later date.)
