Nine organisations and groups have been offered a slice of more than half-a-million pounds worth of funding from Lichfield District Council. Those who will receive a share of a £588,000 funding pot include:
  • Business Enterprise Support
  • Cherry Orchard Gardening Services
  • Erasmus Darwin Foundation
  • Lichfield and District Community & Voluntary Sector Support
  • Lichfield Arts
  • The Lichfield Festival
  • Lichfield & District Live at Home
  • Pathway Project
  • South East Staffs Citizens Advice Bureau
The funding is spread out over three year agreements (April 2012 to March 2015), and will help the organisations to deliver a range of valuable services to the local community. Councillor Colin Greatorex, Lichfield District Council’s cabinet member for organisational development and community, explained: “We deliver many key services in partnership with local voluntary groups and businesses and we are confident that our Service Level Agreements make sure we get great value for money for residents and the very best levels of service. “Our aim is to both support these organisations and to increase the range and quality of local services that are provided to our residents. Our new Service Level Agreements will help to underpin a range of essential local services – such as advice and guidance for victims of domestic abuse for victims of domestic abuse and major cultural and arts events that bring visitors and income into the district. “These organisations and groups provide our residents with important services, so we are delighted that we can offer them help to develop and continue their good work. “These are difficult financial times, so I’m particularly pleased to be able to offer these organisations with the security of three years of funding through our new Service Level Agreements.”
