Ramsgate Future Levelling up Fund Projects Third Party Grants

One project within the successful Ramsgate Levelling Up Fund was the delivery of Access to Opportunities provision within Newington, which includes the creation of a training kitchen facility.  As the monies are limited, the project needs to be based within an existing building, and the most suitable site identified is the Newington Community Centre. 


The Community Centre is leased to Newington Community Association who have agreed that, with support from Thanet District Council, they can directly deliver this project. With Thanet District Council being the accountable body for the funding streams, these funds will be passed onto the third party via a grant, to enable delivery.
