Community and voluntary groups urged to apply for funding

Published: Wednesday, 13th September 2023

Sevenoaks District Council is once again providing grants to support the work of voluntary and charitable organisations across the District.

The Council's Community Grants scheme supports volunteer-led services within the District that help the health and wellbeing of residents.

Community groups, whether newly formed or long-standing, that fall into this category are being encouraged to apply for a grant of up to £5,000 to support their important work. Successful applicants will receive their funding in April 2024.

Cabinet Member for ‘People and Places’, Cllr Lesley Dyball, says: “Our Community Grants scheme is something we are really proud of. The funding helps dozens of voluntary and charitable groups to improve the quality of life for many, especially our vulnerable, older and younger residents.”

“I urge local groups to make the most of this opportunity so they can carry on their amazing work.”
