Show all parts of this guide

1. 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The Councillors' Community Fund can only support one-off projects and cannot be used to replace any withdrawn public funding or provide/imply any ongoing support.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.

The 2023-24 fund is now closed. The 2024-25 fund will be open for applications following the results of the Police and Crime Commissioner election results in May.
