Grants funding applications open for another year

Local community groups and projects can get the extra funding support they need thanks to the member grant scheme.

Almost £113,000 funding is available from local councillors, as each of Swale’s 47 councillors has £2,400 available to support small-scale, local community projects through the member grants scheme. From Monday 3 June, community groups throughout Swale can bid for funding for projects that provide benefits in areas including culture, sport, recreation, health, environment and community safety.

The application process is easy; groups simply need to discuss the project with their local councillor in order to get their support and fill in a simple application form.

Cllr Roger Truelove, leader of Swale Borough Council, said:

“Local projects and community groups make such a difference to our neighbourhoods. From larger community led organisations, to smaller one-off projects, they all deserve as much help as they can get.

“These grants are the perfect way for us to help these groups continue with their hard work and efforts.”

Just some of the previous projects and organisations that received funding from the member grants scheme include:
