Community Grants

Wisbech Town Council Small Grants

Any applications submitted now will be considered for grant handouts in May 2018 (unless there is spare funding available from the Grants budget for 2017).

Who can apply?

Wisbech Town Council will consider applications from voluntary and charitable organisations which are non-profit making and operate with no undue restrictions on membership. The headquarters of the organisation do not have to be within the parish, but it must demonstrate that its activities substantially benefit the local community of Wisbech.

Please note that Local Government Regulations do not permit the award of Wisbech Town Council discretionary grants to individuals. Applications can also not be considered from statutory or profit-making organisations.

What does the Town Council take into account when awarding grants?

Wisbech Town Council will look at the following issues when assessing requests: contribution to social, environmental, and economic wellbeing, community involvement and activities, social inclusion, any previous funding, purpose of the organisation and the assistance requested.

How do I apply?

What happens next?

When Wisbech Town Council sets its annual budget, the funding budget for the next financial year will be agreed. Members of the Finance & General Purposes Committee will evaluate applications and take recommendations for full Council approval. If you are successful, a cheque will be sent for the approved award at the start of the following financial year.

It is appreciated if any organisations which are successful in receiving funding demonstrate how the money was spent.

If you require any additional information or assistance in completing the form, please do not hesitate to contact Wisbech Town Council office.
