Applying for community funding

Applications are currently closed for 2021 but will open again in the new year.

Applications must be able to demonstrate how they will help the council support the wellbeing of residents, improve lives, and enhance access to support services for those who are vulnerable.

The council is aiming to achieve three outcomes using this fund;

  • supporting positive mental health in residents, in particular young people
  • reducing social isolation in residents, in particular older people
  • supporting the community to recover from the coronavirus pandemic

Please note the above criteria is subject to change.
