Grant Funding Programmes

Frequently Asked Questions for this Service

Question: Does the council make grants to local voluntary and community organisations?

Applicants can then make bids for grants in return for delivering the outcomes that are set out in the Prospectus. This is a competitive process and grants are made to the organisations that make the best offers. - Related Link
