Community Grants Available

Groups in South Oxfordshire looking to fund smaller community projects are being encouraged to apply for a grant from their district councillor.
All district councillors in South Oxfordshire now have their own £5,000 budget to help fund projects in their ward areas. They can give grants towards a range of projects like minor improvements to community facilities, defibrillator purchases, play equipment renovations, or setting up a community website.
The individual councillor grants are available to local ‘not for profit’ organisations whose work benefits local residents. This funding is ideal for projects which are relatively low cost and require a quick turnaround and cost between £500 and £5,000. Decisions are usually made within eight weeks.
Projects which have already received funding include fencing to protect the burial grounds in Garsington, a defibrillator purchase for Berinsfield and a 2018 St George’s Day event in Wallingford.
A reminder that your three District Councillors are Cllr Jeannette Matelot, Cllr David Dodds and Cllr Nigel Champken-Woods.
The deadline for applications is Wednesday 19 December, however people should apply to their district councillor as soon as possible – for more information visit southoxon.gov.uk/grants
