Grant Applications for the financial year 2020/2021

Usually, applications from voluntary groups and organisations are considered once each year in September.  As a result of the coronavirus crisis, the Council has agreed that it would administer the grant application process differently this year, in order to assist local organisations that may be in need of support later in the year, when they are operating fully.

There is a total of £12,000 available for grant awards.  £6,000 will be made available under the normal application process, which closed at the end of August 2020, and the remaining £6,000 will be available in March 2021.

Please note that Local Government Regulations do not permit the award of grants to individuals.

To simplify the procedure for both applicants and the Council, you are requested to complete an application form, which can be downloaded by using the link below if you wish to apply and to return this together with a copy of the organisations most recent audited accounts or business plan if you are applying for a substantial grant. (£1,000 or over).

The deadline for 2021 applications is still to be announced.
