There will be some community initiatives which will require larger amounts of funding and to support this, the Community Action Fund (CAF) is in place. Local District Councillors are responsible for receiving, considering and proposing applications for funding from the fund of between £1,000 and £15,000.
Applications will be considered by a CAF Panel; who will meet up to two times per year to consider requests for CAF applications, but may allocate the full budget at the first.
Please contact your local district councillor, who will make an application for funding on your behalf.
For members: should you have any queries about the process of the community action awards please contact the Democratic Services team.
If you would like help about identifying community groups or advice on supporting groups please contact the Communities team.
For information about what can be funded please look at the ground rules.
The total CAF funding for the financial year 2018/19 has now been allocated.
The CAF Panel met on 31 May 2018 and the recommendations and decisions from that meeting can be found here.
The recommendations and decisions from the meeting held on 13 July 2017 can be found here.
Each of our district councillors have an annual budget of £1,000 to spend on projects within their wards. Please contact your local district councillor about funding for your project.
Please note: Members Ward Fund closed at the end of December 2018. More funding will be available in May 2019.
