As part of its to commitment to invest in community hubs and boost young people’s employment skills, two projects that support Hart communities are the first to benefit from a share of £1m funding from Hart District Council.
Yateley Industries and Odiham Parish Council are the first organisations to receive part of the three-year funding from the government’s UK Shared Prosperity Fund (SPF). This is a central pillar of the Levelling Up Agenda to build pride in place and reduce inequalities.
Yateley Industries, a charity that supports adults with disabilities, will receive funding will really help us get the new café off the ground. It will be a training space for our residents to develop skills and confidence and be a meeting point for the local community."
We are delighted to have had support from Hart District Council which allowed us to complete this much needed refurbishment.
These two projects were identified earlier in the year following a stakeholder engagement exercise but the bulk of the £1m SPF funding for 2024/25 is still to be awarded. The current bidding round is open until the end of November and awards for successful projects will be made early in the new year.
