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 members grant scheme for 2020/21 is currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Councillors committed £26,000 from the member grants scheme to further support the Charnwood Community Action campaign which is helping communities during the coronavirus pandemic, which is being run in partnership with John Storer Charnwood to support, advise, guide and co-ordinate the borough-wide community effort.
