Community organisations are being invited to bid for funding.

Groups which help improve people’s health, well-being or welfare across north east Essex are being invited to bid for a share of funding being offered by Anglian Community Trust.

The trust has been set up by community healthcare provider Anglian Community Enterprise.

As a social enterprise, ACE can use a percentage of the profit it makes at the end of every financial year to invest in the community.

ACT has been provided funding by ACE to invest in one-off new or existing community and charity projects.

Applications are now being invited from charity organisations and community groups with the closing date May 9.

Application forms and supporting information can be found on ACT’s website,
