Clockwise is here to help improve the financial wellbeing of the people of Leicestershire and is always looking at ways to give back to the local community and our Community Grant Scheme does just that!
Under the scheme, any community group or individual in need of funds can apply in writing to us for a grant. To apply, the group or individual should be based in Leicester, Leicestershire or Rutland. This can be for a whole range of items; for example, a small piece of equipment for a group such as scouts, guides or a youth club or a laptop for a low income student.
You can read about one of our successful grants here on our news page that talks about how the scheme helped local community boxing gym, Carl Gunns, fund its new equipment.
To apply the group will need to send us a letter outlining what they do in the community, what they need the funds for and the difference this would make to the local community. We may ask for further details following your application.
If you would like to apply, please write to Teresa Manning, General Manager, Clockwise Credit Union, 1 St. Nicholas Place, Leicester LE1 5LB. providing as much information as possible.
We usually respond to applications within 1 month.
