SPECTRUM Housing Group is inviting community organisations that benefit neighbourhoods across the Isle of Wight to apply for a share of a £75,000 fund.

Charities, not-for-profit organisations, schools, social enterprises and community projects can all apply for a grant but they must be located, or operate, in the areas where Spectrum Housing Group has homes and residents.

Stuart Davies, neighbourhood services director at Spectrum, said: "The part of our vision that says Great Neighbourhoods is hugely important.

"One of the ways in which we demonstrate that commitment is through our five Community Forums.

"Collectively they allocate around £75,000 throughout the year to support important causes in their neighbourhoods."

Any cause applying can only receive a maximum grant of £3,000.

Organisations can call 08007837837 or e-mail for full details of how to apply.
