Do you know about the Let’s Create Jubilee Fund???

This is open to voluntary and community groups across the country to develop creative and cultural activities as part of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June 2022. The fund has been created by Arts Council England (ACE) with funds from the National Lottery. The fund is open to voluntary and community organisations with charitable aims and working towards a common goal which does not have to be based solely around arts and culture. This could include youth groups, parent/carer groups and volunteer organisations.

What a fantastic opportunity for community groups to get their thinking caps on and do something fun and exciting in our wonderful village.

Although it is not essential for community groups to link with an arts organisation to gain this funding, applicants are being strongly encouraged to work with an artist, creative or cultural organisation. This is a great opportunity to work with different organisations to bring your idea to fruition for the event working with people in the community.

The Lets create jubilee fund are liaising with local groups and contacting arts organisations to encourage them to collaborate

The Let’s Create Jubilee Fund application is now open and you can find out more information here: Let’s Create Jubilee Fund | Leeds Community Foundation (leedscf.org.uk) The deadline for the fund is Monday 28 February and the applicant needs to be a voluntary or community group.

As well as supporting groups to apply we are also looking at other ways Leeds City Council can enable you to deliver the events over the Diamond Jubilee weekend, this will include promoting your events on our social media and you can list your event on the Leeds Inspired website
