The Member Grants scheme is currently closed, and will recommence from 1st June 2019.
Member grants is a new grants scheme 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.
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 below, to ensure that funding is still available from the Councillor you will be applying to.
Once an organisation has been in contact with the Councillor(s), a completed application form should be e-mailed to the Grants Team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
