Funding for the

community

Despite the current situation, several local community

groups and good causes have still received funding in our

latest round of community grants.

In total, £10,155 has been given to support groups doing

amazing things in the local area. The successful groups

were:

• Well Minds Project

• 1st Kirton Scouts

• Gooch Judo Kwai

• Starlight Arts

• Changing Lives CIC

• Riddings Brigade

• Scunthorpe Samaritans

The grants will help the successful groups to offer even

more support, host more activities, support improvement

of their facilities, and help them give even more back to the

community.

A digital panel of Ongo staff, board members and tenants

looked at each submission at the end of April before agreeing

on the successful groups.

A representative from Scunthorpe Samaritans said: "We will

use this funding to further promote the support we offer to

people, communities, schools and colleges in the local area.

"It will help to promote emotional health and wellbeing,

and encourage people who are struggling to talk and access

support especially during this difficult time."

The Community Grants panel would normally host a

celebration event to showcase the great work that our local

groups are doing. Due to current restrictions, it is likely

that this event will be held virtually so the groups can still

celebrate their achievements.
