Growing Grant 2019


Are you looking to make a positive change and help improve quality of life for those in your community?

Thanks to sponsorship from Chrome Services Ltd, who are working in partnership with SARH to build 23 new affordable homes on Sandon Road, Stafford, the SARH Growing Grant returns for 2019. Two grants to the value of £500 each are available giving two lucky groups of SARH customers the opportunity to contribute to the improvement or development of a green space within your community.

This could be making a community garden, creating a wildlife/eco area or installing raised beds to create a vegetable garden.  Last years grants funded a new Tranquillity Garden at St George’s Road and a Kitchen Garden which allows customers at Doxey House to grow fruit and veg in a wheelchair accessible raised bed.

If you have an idea then we would love to hear from you! Simply complete our online application form to be in with a chance of receiving the grant.

Applications must be received by 5pm on 10th May 2019
Successful entrants will be informed by 31st May 2019

Scroll down for hints and guidance on how to apply! If you would like more information, please email or call 0800 111 4554.

Good Luck!
