A new funding opportunity is currently open to residents and local organisations in Bretnford and Isleworth.
The NatWest Skills and Opportunities Fund is currently open to charities, social enterprises, community groups, state-funded schools and colleges based in my constituency.
The Fund was launched in 2015. NatWest is set to give away £1m in the first of two rounds of funding in 2017. Applications will remain open until midday on Friday 3rd March 2017.
The Fund has already shared £5m in 4 rounds of funding, providing grants of up to £35k to not-for-profit organisations across the UK and Ireland that help people achieve qualifications, find work or start a business. The Fund is expected to reach over 75,000 people by the end of 2017, helping to build better lives and stronger communities.
