Torridge's Community Grant Scheme is now entering its third year of operation with grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 up for grabs.  In the last few years the scheme has distributed nearly £800,000 right across the district which has helped community halls, local clubs, and organisations make their wish-lists become a reality.

The process of applying is quick and easy but applications must adhere to the following criteria:

  • The funding isn't available for a project that has already been completed.
  • The project must be achievable within the funding timescales.
  • A project must be within the Torridge area with funds to benefit residents of Torridge.
  • It must have the support of ALL relevant Local Ward Councillor(s).
  • A project must be run by a local Parish or Town Council, voluntary organisation, community group, social enterprise - not individuals or businesses.
  • A project must have a long-term impact.  Applications for capital spending will be considered, but core organisational costs such as salaries, rent or utilities will not be eligible.
