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.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE ARE NO FUNDS REMAINING FOR GRANTS IN THE 2012-13 FINANCIAL YEAR - GRANT APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED FROM 1st APRIL, 2013.
