Grants for local groups: Grant Aid 2019 Town Council announce £20,000 funding pot

Do you know a local group that would benefit from a cash boost? If you do, be sure to advise them to apply to LTC’s 2019 Grant Aid fund of £20,000.

Continuing to support the Town’s local groups and charities through its annual scheme, Grant Aid’s application process opening on 1st April and closes on Friday 10th May. Available to any charitable or not-for-profit club, group or organisation in Littlehampton, applicants need to demonstrate that their group benefits members of the community by offering cultural enrichment, advice or support, or by providing sporting activities. All applications are considered on the basis of merit, aims and objectives.

A Town Council spokesperson said: “The Town Council actively encourages groups and organisations to apply for grants.  We recognise their needs and goals and wish to help this sector in achieving its objectives and hope to provide even more support by allocating a larger budget for grants this year.”

In 2018 the Town Council awarded grants to groups to fund a variety of resources including a new dinghy for the Arun Youth Aqua Centre, volunteer training for Home-Start Arun and a Christmas pantomime at the Littlehampton Baptist Church.
