Grants for local groups
Do you know a local group that would benefit from a cash boost? If you do, be sure to advise them to apply to the Town Council’s 2017 Grant Aid fund.
Continuing to support the Town’s local groups and charities through its annual scheme, the application process opens on 1st April and closes on 12th May. Available to any charitable or not-for-profit club, group or organisation in Littlehampton, applicants need to demonstrate that their group benefits members of the community by offering cultural enrichment, advice or support, or by providing sporting activities. Applications can be made for up to £3,400 and are considered on the basis of merit, aims and objectives.
In 2016 the Town Council awarded grants to groups including St Barnabas Hospices Sussex for an outreach project, Home-Start Arun for volunteer training and Jamie’s Wish Trust for event equipment.
Councillor Billy Blanchard-Copper, Chair of the Town Council’s Community Resources Committee said: “The Town Council actively encourages groups and organisations to apply for grants. We recognise their needs and goals and wish to help this sector in achieving its objectives.”
Successful applicants will be notified by early July.
