Although town and parish councils cannot apply to the fund, there may be community groups that may benefit from the scheme, such as community building committees, WIs, Scouts, sports clubs and so forth. Application forms and guidance are available on the County Council website:
Of particular note is the new Help For You scheme which provides grants of up to £200 for a young person under 18 to achieve an ambition. Each panel is able to award at least 10 Help For You grants.
Applications will be decided by a Grant Panel established by each of the five new Local Area Councils and the first deadline for applications is Friday 29th September.
