Community Grant Scheme
Wirksworth Town Council is offering Community Grants to help local people run projects that are for the benefit of the people of Wirksworth.
WHO CAN APPLY?
We can award small grants to groups, organisations or projects that will be of benefit to the local area or community. The Council cannot give support to individuals, profit making or commercial organisations.
Groups should be formally constituted. This means that you must have a bank account with at least two independent signatories as well as a governing document/list of governing members and a set of rules.
If you are a group of people coming together for the first time to apply for a grant for a particular project, you need to set up a constituted group. Derbyshire Council for Voluntary Services (http://ddcvs.org.uk/) can help with this.
WHAT TYPE OF PROJECTS CAN GET A GRANT?
We like to encourage applications from local groups who will help us meet our aims, however all applications will be considered on merit. We would also like to think that the project will continue to be sustainable once the grant ends.
Local community and voluntary groups know what is needed in their area and we would like to fund a wide range of different projects from many different organisations.
Your grant application will be considered by the Council and will be assessed against the criteria on the application form and any additional information supplied. Each application is considered on merit and according to the availability of funds.
We welcome any application providing it can be shown to be of benefit to Wirksworth and its inhabitants. Please click here for an application pack.The Town Council also operates a scheme to provide meeting space, to find out more click here for an application pack.
