What is Community First in Wombwell
Wombwell Ward is one of many in Barnsley that has been chosen to be granted Community First Funding.
How this Works
The Wombwell Community First Panel has a budget of around £8000 a year for the next few years. Community Groups can apply to the Local Community First Panel for funding of any project they are running. The minimum application is £250 and the maximum is £2500.
Once agreed by the Local Panel the recommendation is submitted to the Community Development Foundation for final agreement and payment.
The Panel meet periodically and dates of any future meetings arranged are shown on this web site.
The Panel consists of the three Wombwell Councillors, and other members drawn from Local Residents. We are allowed to have a maximum of eight members in total.
