What is the Community fund?
The Rooftop Community Fund is a special scheme which is the responsibility of a group of Rooftop customers. This group of involved residents works on your behalf to improve your housing and related services and the quality of life for residents and the wider community.
The group can distribute funds to projects which directly benefit residents in their local communities.
What can the Community Fund be spent on?
Applications should show that the project or scheme benefits the wider community as well as having a benefit for our residents. Applications for funding can be for grants from £50 to £1000.
In the past we have made a contribution towards a defibrillator and helped a local playgroup needing to purchase new toys and equipment.
Applications can be made by an individual resident on behalf of a group of residents, or by a community group as long as two or more Rooftop residents are involved with the project.
If you have any queries about the Community Fund, please contact us
What happens after I apply?
We may need more detail, or a visit to the project to help with the decision. If we need to come and see your project, we will organise a time to come and visit you. The application will then be discussed by the group and you will be told what they have decided.
We may be able to help you if you need assistance with making a purchase with your grant as well.
Because working in our community is so important to us, we would love to hear back from you to find out how the activity or project went and some pictures that we can share would be even better!
