Groups seeking funding should contact their local county councillor explaining the nature of their project, activity or event, the amount needed, what other funding may be available and how it will benefit the community.
Derbyshire County Council Leader Councillor Barry Lewis said: “Last year we doubled the amount councillors could spend in their areas to help and support communities with their efforts during the pandemic and this year we’ve added to their amounts again with the extra Platinum Fund.
“We see this as a really positive way of supporting all our councillors to help their communities and I’m sure local groups will have lots of ideas as to how they can put extra funding towards Jubilee celebrations and events in their area.”
During the 2021/22 financial year, a total of 500 applications were received by the County Council and approved which were aimed at supporting local organisations and activities through the pandemic.
