We Give Grants for Good Local Causes

Do you belong to a Voluntary / Community organisation based in Kington and working to benefit people who live here? Your organisation might be eligible for a grant from the Town Council to help with its work. 

Grants can be awarded to new and existing organisations. Each application will be considered on its own merit and grants will not necessarily be available to you
every time you apply. We have a limited budget for grants and the total funding requested usually exceeds the total funds available.

We do not give grants to national organisations unless they have a locally-based group. There is a Grants Round every Autumn and Spring - we let the community know when the Rounds are open, by messages here, our Facebook page, posters in the town, and in the local press.

The new Grants Round is now open
You can download all three forms by clicking the links below
