Bewdley Town Council is proud to announce its annual Community Grants Programme for the fiscal year 2024/2025, dedicated to supporting local community voluntary organisations and groups. With a budget of £10,000, individual grants of up to £1000 are available to aid various community initiatives. The primary objective of this programme is to foster a diverse array of community activities within Bewdley, encompassing sporting, cultural, welfare, and charitable endeavours.

Organisations eligible for grants must demonstrate a clear need for assistance and align with the council’s mission of promoting community welfare. These grants are open to voluntary groups or charitable organisations meeting within Bewdley’s town boundary or within a five-mile radius, with a significant number of parish residents in membership or benefiting from their services. As part of its commitment to fostering community growth, the council extends special consideration to new organisations facing funding challenges.

In addition to the general grant fund, Bewdley Town Council has dedicated £1000 of its budget to support sustainable environmental projects. Grant applications are invited to fund a range of activities, including equipment purchases, transportation costs, training sessions, town profiling events, financial assistance for struggling groups, and special events or celebrations. However, grants will not be considered for individual activities, general fundraising appeals, or routine operational expenses.

Applications for the Community Grants Programme 2024/2025 are open from April 1st, and interested organisations are encouraged to submit their proposals by the closing date of 31st May.

Don’t miss this opportunity to contribute to the vibrant community spirit of Bewdley and make a positive impact on local initiatives.

Please ensure you have read the Grant Awarding Policy 2024-25 before submitting an application, as this details all conditions and requirements for obtaining a grant.
