Community funding


Ward budget scheme

Each of the 30 Councillors are allocated a 'ward budget' of up to £3,000 to spend on community projects in their ward

The Member Ward Budget scheme is currently closed for applications. The scheme will re-open in May 2018.

Eligible groups

  • town and parish councils with a community tax of less than £21,000 a year

Community groups can contact their ward councillor to apply for this funding.
