Telford 50 - What's Next?

Telford @ 50 Community Buildings and Facilities Legacy Fund

The Telford @ 50 Community Buildings and Facilities Legacy Fund aims to breathe new life into a range of community buildings and facilities within Telford and Wrekin. Community facilities can include community buildings, open spaces or outdoor facilities such as parks and play areas.

The aim is to update and ‘future proof’ existing facilities to ensure that they are able to meet the needs of Telford and Wrekin well into the future, or to help create new facilities that will support the changing needs within the Borough.

There is up to £20,000 available per building/project and you must provide a minimum of 20% cash match funding.

If you are a charity or voluntary sector organisation, a social enterprise, town and parish council, school or faith based organisation and your project benefits residents of the Borough and you are located in or have a base in Telford and Wrekin you can apply.
