Develop a plan of action with First Steps

Applications for the grants programme close on 8 May


Could your organisation benefit from a new package of support to help develop a community action plan to address local issues?

To be eligible your organisation needs to have a turnover of less than £50,000 a year. To take up this exciting opportunity, check your eligibility and then apply here – please note the programme is open and accepting applications until Friday 8 May 2015.

Torbay’s Voluntary, Community and Social  Enterprise Sector has been experiencing a  period of significant change, in part in  response to those severe reductions in the  public sector that are having such a major impact on local life - with more, of course, to come.
