The fund must be spent on grants for activities and projects that benefit the ward and the maximum grant per application is £500. Any group can apply whether new or existing.

Ideally grants will be used to support the following.

  • Improve health and wellbeing
  • Community Group Recovery

A few examples of some of the things the ward forum grants have funded in the past include; Community clean ups such as purchasing a large skip to remove bulky waste in the community, equipment for various sports clubs, art clubs, things for established Community groups such as Christmas lunches, regular luncheon clubs, funding to host events that are open to the public and much more.

Back in 2019 a Ward Forum Grant was used to hire a large skip for a clean up day in Lee Mount
