  2. Hi, I work for a charity in Cheshire East that provides activity days and day trips for children 5-18 years old with special needs. Could you please tell me what you do and don’t fund please? For example do you fund staff wages and activity days?

    Can you advise where you publish information regarding successful applicants for the Our space your place grant scheme. I understand successful applicants are notified today. I’d like to find out if Finesse RGC in Sandymoor has been successful or not. We have been awarded funding through another source however this cannot be released until we have confirmation either way from Our space your place as to whether we have been successful or not. Please could you let us know as a matter of urgency. Thanks

  6. Hi

    We recently put in an application for funding from yourselves. We had a follow up letter but nothing since. Does this mean that we have been unsuccessful this time. If so, are we allowed to put in a different application for the same community group.

    Many thanks
