Funding for local projects

Projects could get help with funding from their local councillor to help make a difference in their community.

Each of Swale’s 47 councillors has £1,000 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 Richard Palmer, chair of the community committee at the council, said:

“The people who really know what their area needs are those who live there, and member grants are part of our work to help local people work to improve their community.

“To neighbourhood projects, even a small amount of money can make a huge difference, so we want to make sure we’re doing what we can to support them.

“It’s a simple process – you just need to discuss the project with your local councillor to get their support and fill in the application form.”

Previous schemes that received funding from the member grants scheme include:

  • contribution towards redecorating Leysdown Village Hall
  • funding for technology for projects at Old Forge Wartime House
  • replacement lockers at Faversham Pools
