The Council has a discretionary grants award scheme to support a range of voluntary and community organisations to carry out projects and provide activities to benefit local people. The programme distributes approximately £4,000 per annum received through section 137 grant funding. Awards are determined by elected members judging each application on its own merits. Applications for grant awards can be made by completing an application form found here. All applications must be made from 1 July – 31 October 2019.
