Grant Help

The following is eligible to apply:

  • Voluntary and community sector organisation (and in some cases a small business or sole trader or commercial body where the principal purpose of the project is to support a local community activity and is not a commercial or solely promotional activity)
  • A sponsor organisation applying on behalf of a community group (eg. A group of young people)
  • Town or parish council
  • School and/or other statutory service subject to the following conditions (which are based on the council's policy on community grants from which this grants criteria guidance for positive activities is derived):

Funding cannot be used to fund their normal services or activities (e.g. school curricular projects etc);
Funding cannot be used to fund services, activities or works for which they have an ongoing responsibility (e.g. repair, maintenance and routine improvements to their facilities and/or services should be met from the local precept, school or other service funds)
The project/activity/programme for which funding is being sought must be new or support a community project which meets the 'funding criteria' below;
Applications from such bodies will not receive more funding than that contributed in cash by that body, since they are able to raise funds through their precept, school or statutory service funding.
The application of these conditions will be based on the consideration of each application on its own merits and be subject to the judgements of the Area Board who have local discretion on the matter.
