Funding available to Community Groups and Organisations in the BTAC area of Boston

The scheme is operated using BTAC’s Community Grants Policy with a scoring matrix based on the requirements of the Committee that it be consistent with BTAC’s terms of reference; easy to understand; flexible and inclusive; and include a ‘pre-assessment’ process for officers with only those applications scoring above a defined threshold to be considered by a Working Group of Members to make recommendations back to the Committee.

Singing For Fun

CENTRAL PARK BOSTON JULY 17th A lovely Saturday morning with friends.

“With a combination of our volunteers running these sessions and also our normal singing coach joining us too, we have definitely had an influence on people gaining confidence to meet up and join in following lockdown.  The sessions allow social chat & a cup of tea too, so aids new friendships and connections, important as so many people are still feeling vulnerable & anxiety.”
