5. Councillors' Community Fund

If you wish to apply to the Councillors' community fund, please contact your local Councillor(s).The Councillors' Community Fund can only support one-off projects and cannot be used to replace any withdrawn public funding or provide/imply any ongoing support. Applications can only be received from not-for-profit groups and organisations and not individuals.

Local Councillors have £1,500 each municipal year to spend on projects within their Wards. There is no lower limit but projects costing more than £1,500 could be supported by other Councillors combining monies if they wanted to.
