Can my group take part?

Community groups are the principal financial beneficiaries of the ACE project. We take this to be any organisation where a group of individuals come together on a not-for-profit basis to offer a service to the community as a whole or to its members.

Examples of eligible groups include, but are not limited to:

  • Scouting groups (i.e. Scouts, Guides, Cubs, Brownies, Beavers)
  • Amateur sports clubs (i.e. football, cricket, rugby, athletics, gymnastics, boxing, swimming)
  • Pensioners groups
  • Voluntary organisations with community projects (i.e. Round Table, Ladies Circle, Rotary Club, Lions, Women’s Institute, etc.)
  • Self-help groups, e.g. with a health or disability focus
  • Miners’ Welfare organisations, or similar
  • Parent teachers association
  • Community energy groups
  • Transition town groups or other environmental groups
  • Historical, civic or other societies
  • Church based groups who operate activities and services which are not purely for religious benefit
