The Councillor Local Community Fund is designed to help empower local residents to be active in their community and made easy for groups to apply.

How it works

  • Each Councillor has 300 pounds to award to support local projects and activities which can make a positive impact in their area. Awards can be made from a minimum of 50 pounds to a maximum of 300 pounds.
  • There is an option for applications to be made to more than one Councillor in a ward or across wards up to a maximum award of 900 pounds.
