Get help from councillors' fun

There’s almost £113,000 available from your local councillors for projects that benefit the community.

Each of Swale’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 benefits in areas such as culture, sport, recreation, health, environment and community safety.

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

"The people who really know what their area needs are those who live there. These grants are part of our work to help organisations work to improve their community.

"To neighbourhood projects, even a small amount of money can make a huge difference to, so we want to make sure as many as possible apply for support over the next year.

The application process simply needs groups to discuss the project with their local councillor in order to get their support, and fill in a simple application form.

Previous schemes that received funding from the member grants scheme include MS Swale, who received £1,275 in total from six local councillors. This helped support services such as their physiotherapy classes, as well as the development of their fitness programme by paying for equipment for new outdoor bowls sessions in the summer.
