Each year the Council gives grants to local organisations. The grants are usually fairly small, between £50 and £500, as the Council believes that the limited resources which are available should benefit as many people as possible.
The Council will usually only consider grant applications for specific projects rather than a contribution towards ongoing or revenue costs. Full application guidance notes are included with the grant application form.
