The Creme of Nature Community Grant Award, in association with Colures Magazine and Voice of Africa Radio – has been specifically designed to give African Caribbean community and voluntary organisations, and faith groups, working with women, a chance to make a difference to their local community or environment.
The community grant award aims to assist those organisations and groups – providing them with the financial steppingstone to improve their quality of life and inspire others alike. £10,000 will be awarded to ONE African Caribbean organisation or group, in which the grant could go towards purchasing new equipment, organising a group activity of their choice, or providing crèche facilities for women members.
This award is the first of its kind; where Creme of Nature is supporting community cohesion and social inclusion in the African Caribbean community.
The Creme of Nature Community Grant Award is an opportunity for organisations and groups to turn their brilliant ideas into reality. Go on and nominate – this is your chance to make a difference!
