Each councillor has £3,000 to award to local projects and services before 31 March 2018.

This year awards have already been made to youth groups, community centres and sports clubs.

If you have an idea for a project or service that will benefit your local community, contact your councillor to discuss your plans and to ask for an application form.

Councillors have the option to award all their annual funding to either a single organisation or divide it amongst a number of groups. They can also elect to combine their individual fund with other councillors across ward boundaries in order to provide greater support to a particular scheme.
