Every year, Lib Dem Sutton Council asks residents what they would like us to invest in through our annual Neighbourhood Fund.
Residents can then propose projects for funding, this provides a great opportunity for the people of Sutton to let us know what they would like to see in their local area. At the end of the year, a number of projects are chosen and receive support.
We are proud to announce that the Neighbourhood Fund 2020 is now being distributed to 24 different projects across the borough, totalling over £565,000 of investment in our local community!
The projects focus on a wide range of topics, from those which will make Sutton cleaner and safer, to others which draw attention to Sutton’s heritage and the refurbishment of key community centres.
Submitting a project for consideration for the Neighbourhood fund is a fantastic way to make a difference in your community, to put forward a project for funding under the Neighbourhood Fund 2021, please fill in the form here.
