Our last round of grants were awarded in June to:

This charity run Pre-School in Barrow will use their grant to provide the children with more access and learning opportunities at their already established forest school area. As well as providing the children with facilities to ensure they can keep safe and healthy, it will also give the children more opportunities to explore the world around them and discover the wonder of nature.

Who can apply for a grant?

Anyone from a community in Hull, East Yorkshire or North Lincolnshire where KCOM services are available or being installed can apply for a grant.

Your application must be on behalf of a local community group, charity, voluntary group, club, school or other not-for-profit organisation, although you don’t need to work for them.

What can the grant be used for?

The grant must be used to benefit people living in our region. It can be used for specific purchases or to run activities or an event. Previous grants have been used to stage poetry competitions, create gardens, run community-based weight loss programmes and to buy everything from sports equipment to school library books – the options are almost endless. Grants must be used within six months of being awarded.

Who decides if your application is successful?

Our community panel - made up of KCOM employees who live and work in the region, considers every application we have received during this period on a bi-monthly basis.

What makes a successful grant?

Our community panel is looking for applications that will make a positive difference to members of the local community. Ideally, the grant should cover the whole cost or most of the cost of a project, purchase or event, rather than being put towards a bigger fundraising target.
