Melksham Community Grant Scheme

Story posted on

ALTHOUGH the Melksham Area Board is not able to meet in public session, it can still consider and determine grant applications for funding.

If you are looking to fund a community project, you may be eligible for a community grant up to £5,000. Those who can apply include community or voluntary groups, community enthusiasts and town or parish councils.

Community grants

Community funding is available to help provide facilities, equipment and projects that are important to the local community. Projects that meet the local priorities discussed at Area board meetings will be a priority for funding.

Can town and parish councils apply for a grant?

Applications from Town and Parish Councils must demonstrate match funding for any application that is submitted, as they are able to raise funds through their precept/local taxation.

What is the application process?

Applications will be considered at each area board meeting. For details of the next meeting please follow the links under ‘Area board meeting dates’.

When you have submitted your application, Peter Dunford, the Community Engagement Manager will review it. If there is anything wrong or missing from the application, the Peter will explain and send the application back for revision.

Once we receive your grant we will email you to let you know when your application will be heard. You will be required to attend this meeting and introduce your grant. You will not be expected to do a presentation.

Although in most cases you will find out on the night, we will email you to let you know whether your application was successful or not. If your application is approved, we will email you to arrange payment and seek agreement to the terms and conditions.

How can I apply?

All applications must be completed online. If you need computer support to help you to complete the form please call Customer Services on 0300 456 0100 and ask to be paired with a Digital Champion from the Wiltshire Online service.
