We are always seeking to support local organisations and meet need in the community in a flexible and creative way.

We offer financial help through our grant schemes and may be able to offer “in kind” help such as meeting room facilities. Our grant forms are available to download here. We aim to keep the administration as simple and straightforward as possible.
