Member Grants

The member grants scheme closed on Wednesday 28 February.

We're not accepting applications for member grants at the moment.

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 download the guidance notes (PDF 127KB) 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. Please ensure you have contacted your local councillor to discuss your proposal and confirm they wish to support the application. Confirmation of the amount the councillor is committing to your application must be included within the application form i.e an email from the Councillor.

For examples of the kinds of schemes that are eligible for a member grant, you can download the transparency information (PDF 460KB).
