Cotswold DC Grants £120,000

Voluntary and community organisations will be better off to the tune of £120,000 - thanks to grant funding from Cotswold District Council.

The Council's Cabinet has agreed to award the sum between a total of eight local organisations for 2007/08.

The money will be divided as follows:

* £73,800 to the Cotswold Citizens Advice Bureau, to ensure the service continues for local people

* £20,500 to the Gloucestershire Rural Community Council, providing community support and advice

* £12,350 to CHYP (Cirencester Housing for Young People) to pay the rent on supported housing for young people

* £5,637 to the Cotswold Council for Voluntary Service towards rent and transport services

* £5,125 to the North Cotswold Voluntary Help Centre towards transport and befriending services

* £3, 375 to the Cotswold Counselling Service for rent on its Cirencester premises

* £1,750 to Corinium Talking News, a recorded news service for visually impaired people

* £1,550 to the Cotswold branch of Victim Support Gloucestershire, for rent on its Cirencester premises

Council Leader Cllr Lynden Stowe said: "We are delighted to once again be able to help out the voluntary services, who are the cornerstones of community life in the Cotswolds.

"These grants will go a long way towards helping to provide free advice, support and guidance for local people – particularly vulnerable elderly and young residents."
