MORE cash is being dished out to help neighbourhood community groups in the East End.

Projects in Tower Hamlets and neighbouring Hackney, Newham and the City are getting £1.3 million between them from Whitehall.

It follows a successful bid by the East End & City Consortium to distribute Government funding to grassroots groups over the next three years.

The consortium is between St Katharine & Shadwell Trust, the community foundation for the East End and the City, in partnership with three local Voluntary Service councils for Hackney, Newham and the City.

It will dish out grants using its knowledge of East London to identify small organisations best able to use the money to make a real difference to their neighbourhoods.

Communities could also benefit if philanthropists and businesses come up with cash to match the Whitehall funding.
