Champion grants

1. Overview

Each of our county council Champions is allocated a sum of £10,000 per annum for use at their discretion to finance their activities including:

  • organising and attending meetings, seminars and conferences and other similar events;
  • the payment of a grant or loan to individuals and outside bodies and organisations within the scope of their remit; and
  • other incidental costs necessary to enable them to fulfil their roles.

Any unspent balance up to a maximum of £2,500 can be carried over from one financial year to the next giving a maximum budget of £12,500.

The approval of expenditure to be incurred by a Champion has been delegated by the Leader of the Council to the Director of Corporate Services.
