We require match funding of 50 per cent, so for example if your project is worth £15,000 we would fund a maximum of £7,500. Match funding can come from a number of different sources including other funding bodies, or private match but we can only accept in kind contributions to a maximum of 50 per cent of the value of our grant funding.

Who can apply

We welcome applications from community organisations, charitable groups and other constituted groups who are carrying out work for the benefit of the local community. We also welcome applications from local communities who are constituted and who are trying to make improvements to their community and may need support from other areas of the Council to develop those opportunities.

Applications must meet at least one of the following priorities:
