Community grants up to £5k now available

Published: Monday, 18th September 2017

Community grants worth up to £5,000 are now available for voluntary and charitable organisations across the Sevenoaks District to help them to continue their valuable work.

The grants from Sevenoaks District Council’s Community Grant Scheme exist to help organisations which provide services, activities or projects that benefit residents with the greatest needs.

In particular, the Council wants to support projects, activities and services that are delivered with the help of volunteers.

In addition, the Council also wants to receive applications for projects that will improve the health and wellbeing of local residents.

Cllr Roddy Hogarth, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Community Grants, says: “Our community grants have enabled voluntary and charitable groups in the District the chance to improve the quality of life for many, especially our vulnerable, older and younger residents.

“I urge everyone to take advantage of this opportunity, and if you are interested or need extra advice then please do not hesitate in contacting us”.

Eligible organisations have until Friday 24 November 2017 to apply for a grant of between £100 and £5,000 for which successful applicants will be notified in April 2018.

Application packs can be requested by emailing grants@sevenoaks.gov.uk or by calling the Council on 01732 227000.
