Funding In Gannow

There's two funding opportunities available for local community groups and voluntary organisations

Gannow Big Local, a local community group in Burnley, received £1m from the National Lottery to make improvements to the area of Gannow. They would like your help to improve services, facilities and activities in the area.

The group has funded several projects over the last 3 years. Some of the projects have gone on to be sustainable and work in the area on a regular basis.

Examples of the funded projects and their success stories can be found in the latest edition of the Gannow Big Local newsletter which you can download.

Gannow Big Local’s Community Fund is open and is available to groups, organisations and services who would like to deliver a programme of activity or service in the Gannow Big Local designated area. 

Visit the Gannow Big Local Community Fund page for more details and to access the guidance notes and application forms.

The closing date for this month is 12 noon on  28th July 2017.
