Have you grabbed your grant?

Woman Bricklayer with Spirit LevelIn the past year Catalyst Housing Charitable Trust has used its Grab a Grant scheme to award nearly £70,000 to Catalyst residents and community projects.

We’ve awarded money to help pay for:

  • tools to help start a teenager’s bricklaying career
  • equipment and entries to competitions so two young kids can pursue their jujitsu dreams
  • hiring a band for a music event for older residents
  • community football sessions
  • and many more!

Here is a summary of what you can apply for.
