Third sector benefits from Real Help for Communities Phase 2 Modernisation Fund Grants - 28 October 2009

32 organisations have now received grants of up to £10,000 each from the Real Help for Communities Phase 2 Modernisation Fund Grants, managed by Office of the Third Sector.

Administered by Capacitybuilders on behalf of the OTS, these grants are designed to support the funded organisations' plans to collaborate or merge to better respond to the economic climate and the changing demands on the sector. The £10,000 bursary can be used for the costs of merger or collaboration, such as legal fees.

Phase 1 of the programme has already committed over £1 million in grant funding to the sector, for the first steps in exploring options around collaboration and merger.

Organisations that have completed the first phase of the programme still have until 9th November to apply for a phase 2 grant.

Further details are available through the Modernisation Fund website.
