Grants may be used to cover capital or revenue costs and organisations must be able to demonstrate sound financial management and identify clearly what the grant will be used for.

All applications for grant aid from the Town Council are administered via The Good Exchange. Applications can be uploaded to The Good Exchange at any time and will be considered by the Town Council during its twice yearly process.
