The Port of Dover Community Fund, administrated by Kent Community Foundation, makes grants of up to £10,000 to charitable organisations seeking to support the Dover and its immediate environs communities. Projects must fall into two key areas:
- Skills and Jobs: projects that provide opportunities to develop skills, support people on the pathway into employment and assist job creation, with a particular focus on young people.
- Community: activities that enrich the social, cultural and environmental life of local communities, enhancing Dover as an attractive and welcoming place to live, work and visit.
All applications must demonstrate a long-term sustainable impact on Dover, improved quality of life for all and the needs of Dover’s young people, with a particular emphasis on aspiration, education and employability. Successful projects will bring people together, raise aspirations and standards within Dover and promote a pride in the community and place.
All projects need to show how they will benefit the Dover community and will be evaluated in terms of the impact they can demonstrate they are likely to have. Priority will be given to projects that can explain how they will make a sustainable difference. Applicants are encouraged to set out any match funding they have raised or plan to raise. One off events will be considered but applicants will need to demonstrate their long-term benefit to the community.
The panel would like to see evidence that local events are coordinated to avoid duplication and maximise impact. Consideration will be given to funding exceptional projects over three years, focusing on delivering long-term sustainable outcomes within Dover.
Deadline: Wednesday 31 March 2021
