Calderdale Council: Ward Forum Grants

Closing date:

The Council has made a total of £5,000 available for each ward to be spent by the end of the financial year. The fund must be spent on grants for activities and projects that benefit the Ward.

Groups applying must have a constitution (or rules) with a dissolution clause, a bank account in the name of the organisation, and a policy describing how you will safeguard children, young people or vulnerable adults. The maximum grant per application is £500.

Your local Neighbourhood Team is running the scheme for your ward, and eligible applications will be decided upon by Ward Councillors and the Neighbourhood Team; decisions will be reported back to Ward Forums.

Your application form should be sent to the Neighbourhood Team for the panel to consider and it must meet one of the following priorities:

Priority 1 - Activities/projects which bring people together from different age groups, backgrounds, neighbourhood’s and make a difference to the ward (activities must comply with the current Covid regulations, social distancing and health and safety requirements)

Priority 2 – Improve the health and well-being of local people

Priority 3 – Improving the Environment in the Ward
