Applications for the Council's annual revenue grants 2019-20 are now invited.
The Council operates an annual grant award process for providing financial support to local voluntary groups, clubs and individuals.
The grant is designed to help with the annual running costs for non-profit making organisations as well as for one off expenses, events or activities. Individuals may also apply if they are setting up a community activity/event that will benefit Spelthorne residents.
Applications are considered in the autumn of each year, for grants to be paid in the following April. To register a request for funding please submit your application using the online form.
The award of a grant in previous years gives no guarantee of funding for future years.
We are always seeking to raise the profile of the grants awarded and successful applicants should be prepared to appear in any publicity.
For further information call the Community Development Team.
One of the vital roles undertaken by local authorities such as Spelthorne is to promote partnership arrangements with local voluntary organisations to ensure local needs are met.
The Council cannot hope to meet all needs within the current financial framework, but with limited financial resources available for grants we are able to assist the many organisations working within the Spelthorne area to meet the needs of our community.
The Council has streamlined the application and allocation system for grants. All applications will now be considered by a panel administering a single budget comprising of what was formerly the annual revenue grants, sports, arts and leisure grants.
Grants for annual revenue purposes and one off events/activities will be decided in the previous autumn and paid at the start of the relevant financial year. Grants for other purposes such as events, equipment, training etc may be allocated throughout the year, starting from April.
The Council has adopted a standard form of criteria, which will apply to all types of grants. These are set out below.
