Community Grant Aid Awards 2019

Your Community support and services

Our Community Grant Aid Scheme plays an important role in supporting a diverse range of local voluntary organisations to improve services and facilities for local residents.


The Grant Aid scheme helps lever in a considerable amount of external funding and supports local voluntary and community organisations to deliver a diverse range of services enabling local residents to:

  • Connect with others in the community
  • Be Active by participating in sports or community activities
  • Take Notice of what is going on in the community
  • Learn new skills or pass on their skills to others
  • Give through volunteering

Projects receive 70% of requested grant. Applications strongly support four or more of the Council's key objectives, have support from local ward councillor(s) and have successfully secured additional external funding.
Apart from those requesting £500 or less who receive 100% funding.
