The Spring Vale Community First Panel was formed to administer & monitor the Community First Fund which is being made available for local community groups to apply for.
Support local projects that improve the quality of life for local people.

Introduce a new approach to funding projects - leveraging time, money and other resources - helping neighbourhoods play a leading role in regenerating their area.
Community First Funding Opportunity:
Community First is an £80m government-funded initiative that will run for four years, until March 2015. The programme will help communities come together to identify their strengths and local priorities in order to plan for their future and become more resilient. Spring Vale Community First Panel, which is made up of members of your community, have come together to produce a list of priorities to improve your area. It will fund both new and existing community groups.
Endowment Match Challenge (EMC)
This is a way of raising money which can be used in the ward when the Community First programme comes to an end in March 2015. The Government will match every £2 raised for the ward with £1. The Endowment Match Challenge aims to raise £100m in donations through individual and corporate philanthropy. Donations received will then be matched with £50m of government investment. Endowment funds raised will continue to grow over the life of the programme to ensure a sustainable source of funding for communities in years to come.

Priority 1. Improve the local environment:
