Whitley Community Development Association has been set up through the Whitley Big Local initiative.

£1 million was awarded to the area of Whitley through Big Local to make Whitley an even better place to live.

The Whitley Big Local plan, informed and written by local people hopes to encourage new groups by offering a small grants programme administered and supported by WCDA.

Are you a local organisation, charity, group, person or informal collective and you are looking to get a project off the ground that you believe will have a positive and lasting impact on Whitley?

If you have answered yes then we want to hear from you as we are running a series of grant applications throughout the year and you might qualify.

If you'd like to have a quick chat with us then feel free to call us on 0118 374 0052.

We highly recommend reading this blog by Jon Arnold as it gives some excellent advice.

We are really excited to work with locals and we look forward to hearing from you.
