Community Grants Programme

Wealden District Council's Community Grants Programme is now open for Applications until 30th November 2019

Community Groups and Voluntary Organisations can download an application form and Guidance notes below (NB: You MUST read the guidance notes before filling in an application form):

If you require a hard copy of the application form to be sent to you, please contact Michelle Gray using the contact details below.
The Small Grant Scheme is for grants between £500 - £3000.

The Capital Scheme is for grants between £1000 - £15,000. 

The match funding required for projects can now be "in-kind" such as volunteer time, member contributions etc. 

A limited number of 40 minute pre-application advice sessions, for groups which have not had one before, will take place during office hours in Hailsham, Crowborough and Uckfield.

Sessions must be booked in advance and are to directly discuss a drafted application for your organisation. Please contact Michelle Gray on (01323 443520) or email communitygrants@wealden.gov.uk.

If you are unable to attend one of the sessions, at the very least we suggest you make contact to discuss your project. If you can also submit your application so that it reaches the Partnership and Funding Support officer by 15th November, we will do our best to give you some feedback before the closing date so that you can strengthen your application. (Please note that this does not guarantee success). 

Please also use these contact details if you have any other questions.

Funds must be spent within the financial year April 2020 - March 2021.

Applications must be submitted by the deadline of 30th November 2019.
