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 are two Grants Round every year  - 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.

When there is a Grants Round open, it is possible to download application forms from here. Please note that all applications and supporting paperwork needs to be back with the Town Clerk by the closing date.

 

The new Grants Round is now open
You can download all three forms by clicking the links below
application form + guidance notes + checklist
PLEASE NOTE: the closing date is 5pm on Monday 11th February and late entries will not be considered.
Please follow the guidance notes - we will return any forms with missing paperwork, or that are not filled in correctly.
Contact the Clerk or any Councillor for any help needed with the forms.
