Small Financial Grants (Micro Grants)
What is a Micro Grant?
Each Parish Councillor has an annual budget of £200 for “micro grants” to support some local causes that will bring a real benefit to the residents in the Councillors ward.
The Parish Council through their local ward councillors have used their micro grants to give a small amount of financial assistance for things like: equipment for local scouts, kitchen equipment for community use, equipment for fetes, school bike sheds, habitat development, equipment for the Brownies and play school equipment.
If you run or help to run a socially beneficial group or organisation and need some small financial help, then you could ask your local councillor for a micro grant.
The Parish Council is keen to support those small local projects and causes which require only a small limited amount of financial help for that specific project to happen.
You can contact your local member through the council office.
