Olympic Legacy - Haringey Money to promote excellence and other good things - apply now

2012 Local Opportunities Fund

Haringey Council is inviting Haringey based voluntary and community sector organisations to apply for grants of between £500 to £2,000.

The 2012 Local Opportunities Fund aims to support projects which involve Haringey’s communities in the borough’s celebration of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

All applications must respond to and also address at least one of the Olympic and Paralympic Values: respect, excellence, friendship, courage, determination, inspiration andequality.

Types of events we are looking to fund could include:

  • street parties and other community celebrations
  • sporting and physical activity programmes such as  walking, cycling and exercise to music
  • cultural events and activities eg community art, performance: dance, music or film events

Application criteria:

  • The project must be delivered in Haringey
  • The fund will only support new projects or help build on existing ones
  • Haringey residents must be included in the conception, development and delivery of the  project
  • The project must clearly respond to the Olympic/Paralympic Values
  • The project must be delivered between 1 July and 30 September 2012
  • The applicant must be able to demonstrate that they have the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to deliver the project safely, on time and within budget

To celebrate the Paralympics applications are particularly welcomed from groups and organisations working with residents with disabilities.  

What we will not fund:

  • Duplicate funding - where funding for this particular project is already fully funded through another funding body (including other departments within Haringey Council)
  • Items of equipment (though this may be at officers discretion)
  • Projects which aim to distribute a profit
  • Private companies or individuals
  • Retrospective or deficit funding

We will not normally make a ‘one off’ grant of more than £2,000 from this fund other than in exceptional circumstances.

Guidance notes (PDF, 31KB) can be downloaded from the bottom of this page, as can the application form (PDF, 105KB).

Completed application forms should be emailed to 2012fund@haringey.gov.uk by 5pm on 21 May 2012.
