Adult social care - small grant funding 2013-14
The council has made a positive decision to exercise certain powers given to it under the Local Government Act 2000 to fund community based initiatives through small grants up to a maximum of £5,000 for revenue grants and between £2,000 and £10,000 for capital grants. It supports the funding of voluntary and community groups through grants because it recognises that it can be difficult for organisations, especially smaller or less well-known groups, to secure financial support or sponsorship.
Please see the application form for guidance relating to Revenue Funding and Capital Funding.
The council is committed to ensuring that support and services for adults who need them are personalised – this means that they are tailored to suit the individual and are what people actually want. Preference for funding will be given to groups who can evidence how the grant money will support the personalisation agenda.
For further information please read the small grants information leaflet.
