The Council sets a grants budget each year to fund applications from voluntary and charitable bodies which provide services or facilities for local people. The budget has been set at £1,500. In order to comply with the budget and allow as many groups as possible to benefit from a grant, members have agreed that:
a) They will focus their grant distribution on local groups and will not support larger, regional and national bodies.
b) From July 2015 grants will be limited to £200
c) Applications will only be considered from properly constitutued groups
The Grants Policy sets out how the Council will allocate within this framework. Download Grants Policy December 2016
