The grant programme aims to support a wide range of community groups.

Priority is given to groups that have not been awarded a grant within the last three years and that focus on the District Council’s key objectives of Children & Young People, The Environment, Safety, Strength & Health of the community and  Valued Public Services within the community.

Applications for the community grants are accepted quarterly and the next deadline is Friday 29th November 2013, 12 noon.
