Grants to local organisations

The Parish Council’s grant scheme is intended to provide the financial support that will help to promote those community organisations active within the parish that work for the benefit of the residents.

Grants can be made to existing as well as newly formed organisations, but note that it is not possible to consider providing grants to national organisations not having a locally based group. Organisations must be properly constituted, non-profit and be able to demonstrate that their activity benefits Westerleigh residents.

Each application will be considered on its merits, and, because the budget is limited, grants will not necessarily be available on an annual basis. Applications are discussed and awarded at Council meetings in May and November.

An application form with full details of the supporting documentation required can be found here Grant Application form   GRANT APPLICATION guidance notes

Applications will be considered under the following categories:

Older People

Supporting the provision of opportunities for independent living and providing support and assistance where necessary.

Young People

Supporting a wide range of activities for young people and helping to meet their social, educational and leisure needs.
