I encourage local groups to take a look at the programme and complete and submit an expression of interest to me below if you feel your project would qualify.

The deadline to submit your expression of interest is 12PM, Thursday 5th of September, 2019.

I will be establishing an independent committee of local community representatives to assess the expressions of interest and to then shortlist up to 20 projects for consideration.
