Community groups can apply for a maximum grant of £350. A Ward Grant can support a community project, a local community festival, a local theatre production or a craft group. Examples of costs that could be supported include equipment or resources, publicity, materials, and refreshments. Applicants for a Ward Grant will need to demonstrate that there is community support for your project.
Ward grants are for one-off purchases or events and cannot be used for on-going running costs such as wages, utility bills; or rent or fees for facilitators or musicians on an ongoing basis etc.
You can apply for a ward grant for a project to cover one or two wards, but cannot apply for a project covering more than two wards.
