Applications from Organisations

Groups or organisations will usually be based within the boundaries of the electoral ward of Sawley and serve primarily the community of that area. 
The scheme / project should directly contribute to the raising of community spirit and / or improve the environment of the local community. 
Grants to organisations will not normally exceed £750.

Every applicant will be required to fill in an application form, which will only be considered if:
1.      It meets the agreed criteria. 
2.      All the necessary information has been provided by the applicant i.e. up to date quotes, membership lists etc. 

Each applicant is eligible for one grant per year. However applicants (both successful and unsuccessful) can re-apply for funding the next year.  
Each applicant’s form will be considered and, where appropriate, advice will be taken on aspects of the application, including approaching the relevant governing body or agency. Where professional advice is required (i.e. planning, finance etc) the views of the relevant Local Authority Officers will be sought. 

If you represent an organisation operating in, or for the benefit of, the Sawley ward and would like to apply for funding please download and read the detailed criteria in the document below, then download, complete and print the application form and return to the Parish Clerk.
