The Council has made grants available to Town Ward to be spent by March 2018. The fund must be spent on grants for activities and projects that benefit the Ward.
It must be a group that applies, and that group must have a constitution (or rules), a bank account in the name of the organisation, and a safeguarding policy if they work with children, young people or vulnerable adults.
The maximum grant per application is £500.
The Neighbourhood Team is running the scheme for your ward. Due to the short timescale this year, the decisions will be taken by Ward Councillors and the Neighbourhood Teams and reported back to Ward Forums. In the future Ward Forums will be more involved in the decision making process and will be able to influence priorities and projects.
Your application form should be sent to the Neighbourhood Team for the panel to consider and it must meet one of the following priorities:
Priority 1 – Community Celebrations and bringing people together
Priority 2 – Improve the health and wellbeing of local people
Priority 3 – Improving the Environment in the Ward
For an online form email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please don’t be put off by the form – if you’ve got a good idea for a project, ring them and they can help you: 01422 365948
