FUNDING: Heart of the Community, Nisa – apply by 18 June

The 8th round of this initiative aims to brighten the futures of children by providing funding for back-to-school uniforms and summer activities.

The latest round of Nisa’s Making a Difference Locally (MADL) community funding has a pot of £50,000.

The Heart of the Community will award donations of up to £500 each to local causes supporting children with back-to-school uniforms and enriching summer experiences like holiday clubs, fetes, and community trips.

Local schools and good causes can apply for funding by visiting their local Nisa independent retailer. Each store owner decides where they want the funding to go and it can be local or national charities they support.

To be considered for an award, speak to your local NISA retailers in the borough which are in Barnes, Hounslow, Twickenham and Hampton Wick. You can find their details using the Nisa store locator here.

The funding is raised through the sale of own brand products.

The closing date for this round of applications is Tuesday 18 June 2024.
