Members grants scheme reopens

Community projects could get a funding boost from their local councillors.

Every one of the borough’s 47 councillors has £2,400 available to support small-scale local community projects through the council’s member grants scheme.

Community groups can bid for funding for projects that provide cultural, sporting, recreational, health, environmental, heritage, community safety, crime reduction or educational benefits to the local community

Cllr Duncan Dewar-Whalley, cabinet member for finance at the council, said:

"Local people are best placed to know what their area needs, and these grants are part of our commitment to supporting people in their work to improve their community.

"Even small amounts of money can make a big difference, so we want to make sure as many people as possible apply for support over the next year."

Last year, 181 grants were made to local groups to support projects including the Faversham Christmas lights, Leysdown Village Hall, and Sittingbourne in Bloom.

The application process simply needs the person or group to discuss the project with their local councillor to get their support. They will then help complete the relevant form, and submit the application for approval.

To find out more about member grants contact your local ward councillor, email or call 01795 417155.
