Helping Hand is a small grants scheme set-up by North Cotswolds Rotary to help support the amazing work carried out by small charities and community organisations across the North Cotswolds. 

Grants up to £500 are available but must be for a specific project or activity.  The grants are not available to support day-to-day running costs.   Applicants must be based within the North Cotswolds area (defined as from Northleach up to Moreton-in-Marsh and surrounding villages) or carrying out activities that benefit people living in the North Cotswolds.  A video providing more details can be viewed below.
