Small grant funding

Adult social care - small grant funding 2016-17 - capital

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 revenue and capital grants up to a maximum of £5,000.00. 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.

Eligibility criteria

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.


If your organisation would like to apply for a small grant, and meets the council's criteria, please complete the Word file downloadSmall Grant Application Form (Word, 106kb) and return to the address detailed at the end of the form.

The deadline for completed forms to be submitted is 5 p.m. on Tuesday 31 May 2-16.

Applicants will be notified of awards by mid June 2016.
