Member Grants

The member grants scheme is now open to applications and will close on 31 January 2023.

Member grants provide funding to support small-scale, local community projects.

Applications should provide cultural, sporting, recreational, health, environmental, heritage, community safety, crime reduction or educational benefits to the local community. We would also support projects that help people with the increasing cost of living.

Preparing your bid

You should read the guidance notes prior to making an application to make sure your project meets the criteria for the grant scheme.

Your application will need the support of a local councillor or councillors. We recommend that you contact your local councillor to discuss your proposal and see if they wish to support the application.

For examples of the kinds of schemes that are eligible for a member grant, you can download the Member Grants Project Summary 2021 (PDF 3493kb).


You can apply for a member grant online.


Once the funding has been awarded and project has taken place a monitoring form will be sent, or it can be downloaded here.

Please complete the form and return it with any supporting evidence to the community grants team at
