COMMUNITY housing projects and charities are being urged to apply to Nationwide, the world’s largest building society, for a grant.

The society is inviting applications for grants of between £10,000 and £50,000 for housing projects that will support the most vulnerable.

So far Nationwide has awarded £7 million in grants to more than 180 projects and will be investing over £20 million in housing projects across the UK over five years.

Charities, community land trusts and housing co-operatives on the Isle of Wight can apply for grants to make a change in their local area.

The application process closes on November 22 and successful applicants will be notified by the end of February 2020.

Details can be found at or in Nationwide branches.
