There are three types of grant available to help develop or improve services for local people – Capital Grants up to £5000, Revenue Grants up to £500, and Staying Healthy Grants up to £1000.

Each grant is designed to help with different costs such as building works, equipment purchase, venue or transport costs or one-off special events. We can provide advice on which grant is most suitable for your group or organisation’s needs.

Applications for community grants are accepted quarterly and the next deadline is Friday 27 February 2015, 12pm.

Groups that have received a grant within the last two years are not eligible to apply and priority will be given to groups who are new to apply and focus on the Council’s key objectives of Children & Young People, The Environment, Safety, Strength & Health of the Community, and Valued Public Services within the Community.
