News – Sovereign launches £60,000 fund in partnership with The Good Exchange

The Good Exchange has partnered with Sovereign, one of the largest housing associations in the UK, to launch a new £60,000 fund for community investment across the south of England.

Communities and charities in Hampshire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Dorset, Devon, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and the Isle of Wight – located within a 3 mile radius of the areas where Sovereign has homes – are encouraged to apply for grants from the organisation’s ‘Community Assets Fund’ via The Good Exchange platform.

Grants will be awarded to support a wide variety of projects, from community events to upgrading community centres.

“We’ve committed to increasing our funding for communities to £3m a year, because we know that when the drive and passion of a community is harnessed, nothing can stop people from achieving their goals. We’re working with The Good Exchange across our geography so that we can support small community organisations to develop, sustain and become ‘anchors’, meeting their community’s aspiration.” Heather Bowman, Chief Operating Officer Sovereign Housing Association.
