- projects that have outcomes that are aligned with the council’s strategic grant priorities
- core funding for organisations whose strategic aims closely align with the council’s strategic grant priorities.
Deadline: Currently closed to applications.
Improvement Grants awards grants of up to £3,000 to help organisations get started with a new idea or to develop your organisation.
To be eligible, projects or plans must deliver against the Council’s priorities set out in their Corporate Plan. This work could include innovative new projects or plans to develop your organisation.
