Community Support Fund

Published: 09 August 2022

At the full council meeting on 28 July councillors voted in favour of a new community support fund. The Town Council already provides grants of up to £500 for the community/not-for-profit groups to spend on capital items but now we have a Community Support Fund designed to support new volunteer groups in their early days. The fund covers room hire in the Chantry Centre up to the value of £100.

Starting up a new community group is hard work and one of the most challenging requirements is finding somewhere affordable to meet, often before you even have a bank account. Using our new Chantry Centre facilities allows us to help you ‘Build Community’ and give you time to establish your group and funding sources. To apply please complete the online application form.
