5. Councillors' Community Fund

The Councillors' Community Fund can only support one-off projects and cannot be used to replace any withdrawn public funding or provide/imply any ongoing support.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 £1,000 each municipal year to spend on projects within their Wards. There is no lower limit but projects costing more than £1,000 could be supported by other Councillors combining monies if they wanted to.

Elections

  • no community fund grants will be paid or processed during scheduled Parliamentary, European, County, District, Town and Parish elections in Teignbridge following the publication of the notice of election until the conclusion of that election;

  • in a by-election of any Teignbridge Councillor serving a multi-member Ward, no Community Fund grants from other Members in that Ward will be paid or processed following the publication of the notice of election until the conclusion of that election; and

  • in the event of a Parish by-election, no community fund grants will be processed from Councillors within the Ward for the benefit of the Parish which has the election, following the publication of the notice of election until the conclusion of that election.

Where projects and activities involve children, young people and/or vulnerable adults, groups must have relevant policies and procedures in place. You will be required to upload your safeguarding and equalities policy as part of this form. (If applicable).

The councillor you have applied to will decide whether to recommend your application for funding. Your application will then be reviewed to check it meets the criteria for funding and if so, the grant will usually be paid into your group’s bank account within 4 weeks via BACS transfer.

You must complete a monitoring form 6 months after you have received your funding. This will be emailed to you. Please ensure you complete and return this promptly.
