The Government had a pot of funding for community projects. They asked the Community Development Foundation to manage it.
There were four areas in Stoke on Trent with Community First funding. Each area had a panel of local people - residents and representatives. Each Panel put together a community plan. Each area had its own local priorities.
The funding was available from 2011 to 2014. Community groups could apply for between £250 and £2500 to their local panel. Every £1 provided in funding had to be matched by a similar amount of in-kind donations (this means donations of cash, services, free products or volunteer time).
