Ashington Town Council can offer small grants and funding to local organisations working in the town where, in the Council's opinion, the grant would benefit any part of the town or any of the inhabitants.
Any organisation can apply to the Small Grants Scheme provided that:
- it is voluntary and/or not profit making
- it can demonstrate the need for financial assistance
- it operates or gives benefits to those who reside in the town and
- it operates with no undue restriction to membership.
Organisations should be able to demonstrate their independence and should have their own management committee with a governing document or constitution in place. New organisations can apply providing they aim to meet the criteria above. For more information and to apply please see the link to the Application For A Small Grant below.
In addition to the Small Grant Scheme, Ashington Town Council also provides funding to voluntary & community sector infrastructure organisations operating in the town as well as the town's main sports clubs.
