Applications for this scheme are now open. 

The Councillor Community Grant Scheme is a budget of £3,500 allocated to each District Councillor to support local voluntary and not for profit organisations within, or that benefit, their ward. 

Grants of up to £1,000 per councillor can be awarded. You can apply to more than one Councillor, however the maximum total grant per project is £3,000. 

The scheme has been set up to contribute towards specific projects and should not be used to cover day-to-day running costs or salaries.

Applications can be made throughout the year until the Councillor has spent all of their allocated funds.

For this financial year, applications must be received no later than Friday 28 February 2025.

Further details about the fund, including the eligibility criteria and how to apply, can be found in the grant application form below.
