Exeter Ward Grants

Community groups can apply for a maximum grant of £350, this is from an overall budget of £39,000. Each Ward has £3,000 to spend. A Ward Grant can support a community project, such as a community festival, 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, 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 ward.

Groups that have previously received funding from Exeter City Council must ensure they have completed an impact evaluation for completed projects within three weeks of project completion, before applying for any further funding.

We recommend that you talk to your local Ward Councillors and Community Builders before submitting an application as they will be able to provide advice and support.
