Member grants

The Member Grants scheme for 2019/20 is now open! 

This is the second year the grants scheme has been running, enabling Councillors to provide grants to a wide variety of community and voluntary organisations within Charnwood.

Each borough councillor has been allocated an annual budget of £1,000 which can be used to support projects that bring benefits to their ward.

Organisations currently running projects with community benefit in Charnwood are invited to apply for a minimum of £250 per member, and up to a maximum of £1,000 per member, and applications may be made to more than one member.  Funding can be provided towards community events, activities, equipment, uniformed groups such as Scouts, Guides, Cubs and Brownies.  For more information please read the Guidance Notes below.

The deadline for applications is February 28, 2020.

Applying for member grants

Organisations should discuss their project with their local Councillor before applying.

To find out details of the appropriate Councillor to apply to, please view our list of councillors. Please also check the table in the document below, to ensure that funding is still available from the Councillor you will be applying to:

Please read the guidance document in full before you complete the application form, and include the relevant supporting documents with your application to ensure it can be properly assessed and a decision can be made quickly.
