Grant Aid 2021/22
Prudhoe Town Council aims to promote and protect the quality of life and well-being of those who live in, work in, or visit the local area. To this end, the Council offer grants to local organisations which are based in, or provide services to Prudhoe and Mickley, to help them maintain and develop their services, facilities, and activities.
Charities and Community Groups have an exceptionally positive impact on ‘Pride of Place’, community spirit and visitors, and are often a major source of activity and support for residents. For these reasons, Prudhoe Town Council enthusiastically maintain a high level of support for the charities and community groups operating in and for our town.
Throughout the pandemic Prudhoe Town Council redirected traditional Grant Aid funding and unspent balances to support those groups responding to COVID-19 and the effects thereof. In 2020-21 the Council supported 32 different groups with a variety of projects and initiatives totalling almost £66k. Read more on the Grant Aid page.
The Council has recently agreed awards of Grant Aid for the current financial year (2021/22) and is delighted to have some stalwarts of the Prudhoe community back in operation and raring to go.
Our thriving local network of community groups and charities include the arts, welfare support, youth work, town events, education, sport, conservation, and environmental initiatives. The total pledged in 2021/22 is over £63k with an additional £10,375 carried forward from last year. Almost £74k of Grant Aid funding is a significant contribution, demonstrating the Council’s commitment to the quality of life of our residents. Awards committed in this financial year are listed below, with links to group websites or Facebook pages, if available.
