Local Member Grants Scheme

1. Overview

Our Local Member Grants Scheme helps our county councillors to support the vital work of voluntary, community and faith sector (VCFS) groups.

The grants can be used to fund projects that will directly benefit the community, from gardening workshops and knit and natter sessions, to football activities to help young people stay active.

Groups can apply to their local county councillor, who will decide which applications are accepted and award a grant from their own budget.

They will have an initial budget of £500 for grants handed out in their electoral division between January and March 2022. From April 2022, the annual Local Member Grant budget for each county councillor will be £2,000 for each financial year.
