Grants and Funding

The Town Council grant systems look to help as many groups as possible

The Council aims to assist local organisations to achieve their respective aims and objectives where these benefit the Town and the local community.  In addition the Town Council endeavours to work in partnership to attract funding from local and national bodies to benefit local residents.

The Town Council offers different grant programmes as a means of financial support:

Service Funding Agreements 

Renewed every three years, the funding supports a variety of organisations. See which Funding Agreements we have in place.

Grant Aid 

Funding for voluntary organisations serving the local community. Read more details on the Grant Aid page.

Sports Excellence Grants 

Funding for local sportspeople awarded by the Sports Forum with funds from the Town Council. Read more details about the Sports Excellence Grants.

    Other ways to Fundraise

    Why not use the Community Market Stall which is available free of charge at the weekly Friday market in the High Street to Littlehampton community groups and non-profit organisations to fundraise or raise awareness?
