The Government has published its roadmap out of the current lockdown which is available at

For the 2020/21 financial year, each borough councillor was allocated an annual budget of £1,000 to be used to support projects that bring benefits to their ward.

Councillors committed £26,000 (£500 each) 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. More information in this news story.

We are now opening the Member Grants scheme for 2020/21.

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 £500 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 for applicants and read and complete the eligibility checklist.

The last date for applications is February 28, 2021.
