Grants

Brixham Town Council is committed to supporting and strengthening the community groups which help to make a positive difference to Brixham as a place to live and work.

At the discretion of the Town Council, grants are awarded to appropriate community organisations who demonstrate a clear need for financial support and contribute towards the vision and aims for Brixham.

The Town Council will support community groups based in the town who seek to develop joint community-based links with surrounding communities.

Though there are no limits to the size of organisation which may apply to the Council, grants are normally targeted at small, local voluntary and community organisations where a small amount of money can make a significant difference.  The Council want to see applications that engage local people and encourage them to participate at all levels in the groups and organisations.

There are two categories of grants:

a. Small Grants of 7,500 and under
b. Large Grants of 7,501 to 25,000.

Grants are considered quarterly and the Finance and General Purposes Committee meetings in April, July, October and January.  Grant applications should be submitted to the Town Council in good time for these meetings but at least 8 days prior to the Committee meeting date.

Applicants are encouraged to read the grant policy carefully and ensure that their project complies with the criteria set by the Town Council.  Any applications received that do not, are unlikely to be put forward to the Committee.
