The community grants scheme was established and is run by the council to fund activities and projects that bring communities together and that promote educational, recreational, leisure and other activities, or improve the local environment. 

Support can be provided for everything from excursions and entrance fees to admin and start-up costs and special events.

More information on the criteria, activities that attract funding, and the application process are available on the dedicated page of the council website.
