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 offers 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.
When allocating Grant Aid, the Council will consider each case on its merits and give priority to those groups providing services and facilities and/or fulfilling a role where there are currently ‘gaps’ in provision. However, the Council will consider requests for Grant Aid outside these target groups.
Grant Aid can be used for capital (e.g. purchasing tools and equipment) or revenue expenditure (e.g. running costs) and/or as ‘start-up’ funding for new bodies. However, within these broad categories, organisations must provide details that clearly set out how Grant Aid will be used.
Grant Aid is intended for voluntary, non-profit making organisations who provide facilities, activities and services principally for residents served by Prudhoe Town Council. Typically, these organisations include sports, play and art clubs, community associations, youth organisations, organisations that assist disadvantaged/vulnerable groups and charitable trusts.
Prudhoe Town Council will not fund:
• Business organisations whose aim is profit
• National charities (unless specific direct services are provided within the local area)
• Other organisations operating from outside the Town Boundaries (unless specific direct services are provided within the local area or these organisations contribute in some other way to the wellbeing of the Town and its residents)
Applications for Grant Aid must be received by 6th March 2020. The Town Council will agree awards at our meeting on 25th March 2020, with funding being paid at the end of April.
Applications are welcome via email, post or hand-delivered. Copies of the guidelines and application form can be download or collected from Prudhoe library.
Please direct any questions to the Town Council office.
