Community Action Fund

There will be many community initiatives which will require larger amounts of funding. The Community Action Fund (CAF) is provided to support and fund these initiatives. 

Local District Councillors are responsible for considering and proposing applications between £1,000 and £15,000 from the CAF fund.

Applications will be considered by a CAF Panel; who will meet up to two times per year to consider requests for CAF applications, but may allocate the full budget at the first.  

Please contact your local district councillor, who will make an application for funding on your behalf.

For members

If you would like help about identifying community groups or advice on supporting groups please contact the communities team.

For information about what can be funded please look at the ground rules.

Please read the ground rules before applying for funding.

CAF applications for the 2023 panel are now closed.
