Councillors' Community Fund:

Northampton Town Council has a commitment to encourage, support and promote volunteer organisations and charities within its area for the benefit of the Town. The Town Council makes an annual budget provision for Community Grants to help meet its aims. This scheme provides grants nominated by individual Ward Councillors, generally for amounts not exceeding £2,500. Applications for this scheme will be considered three times per year. For grant schemes in excess of £2500, serving a wider area of Northampton, please see the General Community Grants Scheme.

The Town Council seeks to provide grants which meet the following outcomes:

  • Any purpose which will enhance the economic, social and environmental well-being of their ward or part.
  • Providing information to constituents, or seeking the views of constituents, whether about the Council or about any other matter affecting the economic, social or environmental well-being of the Council's area.
  • Contributes towards a particular policy objective which the Council may determine from time to time.

Please note you must provide a statement from the local councillor of the ward in question. It is recommended your application is submitted in advance of the deadline to ensure the Town Clerk can validate it and ensure any missing information is provided.

PLEASE NOTE: Your name, position, email address and address will be disclosed to the committee when considering the application. All other information on this form will be made publicly available via the Town Council website as part of the agenda for the committee meeting.
