Core Funding Applications for 2023/2024 are open.

If your organisation wishes to be considered for core funding in the 2023/24 Budget, applications should be submitted by 30th September 2022. Core Funding grants usually covers the long term to ensure that a local organisation has a sustained source of funding to cover operational costs. Core grants are considered in the year prior to the grant being awarded. When setting the budget (between November and January), the Council will consider whether existing core funding should continue and if any additional core funding applications should be budgeted for. Cheques will be presented at the July 2023 Full Council meeting.

A copy of the Grants Policy is available here.
