Councillor Ward Grants

Good idea? Need a little bit of funding? – The Councillor Ward Grant Scheme

Do you feel your organisation or project could do with a bit of financial support? Will it benefit people living in your Town Council Ward?  Is it good value for money?  Is the funding you need less than £1,000? The Councillor Ward Grant Scheme could be just right for you.  Councillors each have up to £500 allocated to support applications. You can ask more than one Councillor for a grant and they can combine their budgets to support larger grants. Projects supported so far this year have included £163 to Dover sMART project towards the cost of a gazebo for community events, £100 to Dover Big Local to support children’s craft workshops, and £250 towards improved security at the Clarendon and Westbury Community Centre. Forms are as quick and easy as possible to complete.  They can be downloaded from the grants section of our website together with some short guidelines.

Contact your Ward Councillor first to discuss your idea and ask them to support you.
