Council's main contractor for Marina Centre Development offers grants to local groups in the borough

Morgan Sindall, the council's main construction partner on the Marina Centre Development, is offering grants to local businesses, schools, community groups and charities in the Great Yarmouth borough, through their Customer Experience Initiative.

Morgan Sindall offers grants to local groups

The construction company has already supported the local economy by using SME companies in Great Yarmouth for 75 per cent of the project's supply chain, providing employment opportunities for people living locally and offering real-world training for Great Yarmouth apprentices during the project.

The small grants can be used for a variety of reasons, including refurbishment, sponsorship of an event or team, benches, clean ups, equipment or anything else suitable.

Although there is no formal application process for the grants on offer, those hoping to receive one will need to email with a description of the proposal, who it's for, the cost of project, any previous quotes or sketches, ideal timescales for assistance and a contact name, number and email address. Applications close on 3 September 2021.

John Stedman, Senior Contracts Manager at Morgan Sindall Construction, said: "Supporting local communities beyond the construction work we do is hugely important for the whole team at Morgan Sindall Construction. For us, it's about making sure people not only have the best buildings in which to live, learn, work and play, but also that our reach extends beyond the scheme so that the area's residents feel a positive legacy for years to come.

"As a company that cares about the people and the communities in which we work, we take a proactive and positive approach to supporting them wherever possible, and this grant initiative is part of helping that become a reality here in Great Yarmouth. We're really looking forward to receiving the applications for review and are excited about seeing the local benefits and value that these grants will create."

Cllr Carl Smith, leader of Great Yarmouth Borough Council, said: "As well as doing a brilliant job on the construction for the Marina Centre Development, these grants are a wonderfully generous offer from Morgan Sindall which can benefit and help support our local communities."
