In May 2012 Osmani Trust successfully registered three wards in LAP 1 & 2 for Community First. There are small grants of £250 – £2,500 available for community members and groups who are working in or from the following wards:
- Mile End and Globe Town
- Bethnal Green North
- Bethnal Green South
Upon successful outcome of application the first Community First Panel meeting was setup. Since May 2012, Osmani Trust has run two funding rounds and has supported over 20 groups to deliver community based interventions.
Community First Plan
Community First Panels are required to create a Plan that sets out what we will do to improve our local area. The Community First Panel will then fund projects or activities that will compliment the Community First Plan. This questionnaire is part of the consultation process and your chance to participate in Community First and ensure that funds in the next two years are spent on areas identified by local communities.
We would be very grateful if you took a few minutes to fill in the following questionnaire for the development of the Community First Plan. All personal information will be kept confidential in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.
Alternatively you can download a hard copy of the questionnaire and give this back to us at the following address
