Capacitybuilders awards £2.5m for modernisation

Capacitybuilders has awarded 20 grants totalling £2.5m to modernise third sector support services in local areas.

The non-departmental public body, sponsored by the Office of the Third Sector, has awarded  the funds to projects across England based on seven main themes, including developing leadership to strengthening community group outreach and finding more sustainable methods of delivering services.

The projects that will receive funding include the Rutland Third Sector Infrastructure Consortium, which will be handed more than £250,000 to run leadership and mentoring projects, particularly among small organisations, and the London Regional Consortium , which will get £140,000 to develop a guide to securing and developing premises.

The awards are part of a three-year, £11.5m investment by Capacitybuilders in modernisation and improvement of third sector infrastructure. The first series of grants under the modernisation programme were announced in June at the organisation's annual conference in Birmingham.
