Consortium to deliver Communitybuilders Programme 30/06/09

By Claire Racine

The Department for Communities and Local Government has announced that a consortium led by the Adventure Capital Fund, in association with Futurebuilders England and the Community Alliance, has been appointed as the national delivery partner for the £70 Communitybuilders Programme.

“Across the Community Alliance partners - bassac, Community Matters and the DTA - there exists a wealth of practitioner knowledge and expertise,” said David Tyler, Community Matters CEO.

“And with our experience of working with over 1500 grassroots community organisations we are well placed to provide support at all stages of the programme.”

Communitybuilders, run jointly by CLG and the Office of the Third Sector, aims to build more cohesive, engaged and active communities through investment in multi-purpose, community-led organisations that want to develop enterprise activity.

Investment will comprise a mix of loans, grants and non-financial support at different stages of project development, including expert advice and mentoring services.

“The combined expertise of Adventure Capital Fund and the Community Alliance is formidable, bringing as they do their unique blend of financial know-how and real insight into what makes communities tick,” said CLG. “This will bring a real result for community anchors across England.”

Communitybuilders will be open for applications later this summer.

However, those organisations who wish to register an interest in applying for the fund or would like further information can call 0191 261 5200.
