Community Fund Grant Scheme

The Council has its own Community Grant Fund from which it provides grants of up to £25,000 to assist local 'not for profit organisations' with the delivery of community projects.

To qualify for a grant from the Community Grant Fund applications must fit with the Council's objectives from our Five Year Strategy  and must demonstrate benefit to the local community or a section of it.

Grants are available for amounts up to £25,000. The Council will consider grant applications below £2,000 and will pay up to 75% of the project cost; and applications between £2,001-£25,000 and will pay up to 50% of project costs.

For further information please download the Guidance Notes and Application Form or speak to one of the Community Development Officers.
