Grants To Voluntary Organisations
Do you help run a local charity? Then you may want to read something on the District Council website about grants:
The Council has a small annual budget for grants to voluntary organisations to assist in the delivery of their organisations activities. The grants are normally allocated once a year. Any organisation that has been funded in previous years that does not submit an application will not receive funding.
Please click on the ‘guidance notes’ link below for further information on submitting an application.
All applicants must complete the form located in the Related Documents section and return it with the required financial information (see bottom of form for information) to the address below by Friday 23 November 2012:
Andrew Lowing, Community Planning Officer, Rochford District Council, South Street, Rochford, Essex SS4 1BW
The maximum amount that can be requested is £1500.
Organisations will need to show how they contribute to one or more of the Council’s Corporate Aims which are listed below:
• Making a difference to our people
• Making a difference to our community
• Making a difference to our environment
• Making a difference to our local economy
In addition, the Council will give priority to organisations that provide a local service that operates within the District either solely or mainly for the following priority groups:
• Older people
• People with disabilities or who are disadvantaged
• Young people
