Grants To Voluntary Organisations
The council makes occasional contributions of up to £500 to voluntary organisations which provide meals, outings and recreation for older people. The grant is paid into the organisation's bank account when we receive receipts for the activity that the grant was awarded for. You will be expected to submit your receipts in order to claim your grant.
To apply, please use the form and guidance notes in the right hand downloads menu.
For examples of organisations that we have funded in the past, please see the related information leaflet.
The application process is currently closed.
