Grant Scheme

The Council operates a grant scheme which provides financial support to organistations that benefit the area or its inhabitants. As Council's funds are limited and there are many calls upon them, the Council deals with grant applications on an annual basis usually in March of each year. To be considered applications must be received by the end of February to ensure inclusion within the annual round.

The Council has compiled a set of guidelines for applicants, a copy of which can be downloaded by clicking here.

There are strict guidelines which the Council itself has to follow, and it should be noted that each application will be viewed by the Council on its own merits. Should you have any questions please contact the Office for further information.

When making a request the following must be considered:

  • What benefit to the parish or its residents would the grant provide.
  • Is the proposal's objectives realistic and will the grant requested, along with other funds, cover the costs involved.
  • Have you sought funding from other sources.
  • The Council does not grant loans.
  • Strict criteria may be applied to large capital projects.
  • Any grants made may be subject to conditions (although these will not normally be too onerous)

A grant application form can be downloaded by clicking here (pdf version) or here (MSWord version).

For further information please contact the Office.
