The Warwickshire County Council Councillors’ Grant Fund is aimed at community and voluntary organisations. It provides each of our 57 Councillors with a pot of £6,000 to support small-scale projects within their division that support the following outcomes:
- Warwickshire’s communities and individuals are supported to be safe, healthy and independent
- Warwickshire’s economy is vibrant and supported by the right jobs, training, skills and infrastructure
All applications should aim to build community solutions to local issues and improve the health and wellbeing of people living in Warwickshire. In particular, applications which address one or more of the following priority categories will be favoured:
- improve community assets and their sustainability
- improve access to services
- improve financial capability
- reduce loneliness and isolation
- improve health and wellbeing
