COMMUNITY FUNDING 2023/24
For 2023/24 the Town Council has a total budget of £173,300 for Community Funding to support groups and organisations in the Town and to help them deliver activities and projects that benefit Blyth and its residents. The funding is split into £157,300 for Community Support Grants and £16,000 for Councillors’ Small Schemes Funding (each Councillor is allocated £1,000).
The Community Funding Sub-Committee meets four times a year to consider applications for Community Support Grants.
Councillors can use their Small Schemes funding at any time of the year to give grants or pay for projects and their requests must be approved by the Chair and Vice Chair of the Community Development/Community Funding Sub-Committee and the Town Clerk.
