A pot of more than £4million is up for grabs for individuals and community groups wishing to improve their area.

Southwark Council has invited residents and community groups to suggest how they would use the Cleaner Greener Safer Fund money.

Community groups that want to promote inclusion, improve skills, combat isolation and help young people can bid for the separate Neighbourhoods Fund.

Those who would like to improve public roads in Southwark can apply for the Devolved Highways Fund.

The deadline to apply for the funding is October 23 and successful proposals will be announced at the borough’s community council meetings in January.

Children and family focused enterprise Centric Learning Tree secured Neighbourhoods funding last year which helped them to deliver Stories in the Park this summer.

Cllr Barrie Hargrove, Southwark Council’s cabinet member for communities, leisure and safety, said: “We are looking forward to receiving this year’s applications and hope to make as many as possible become a reality across the borough.”
