Community groups eligible for grants
Leighton-Linslade Town Council has announced that applications are welcome from local community organisations for grants in 2013-2014.
For general grants, organisations could be eligible for grant aid of up to £500 for specific projects provided you meet the criteria which requires that your group is a not-for-profit group based in the town and can use the grant within one year on a specific project, not day-to-day running costs.
It must also have aims and objectives that are clear and well defined and are a real benefit to the community of Leighton-Linslade, have a bank or building society account with at least two joint signatories and a constitution or set of rules.
As well as this, groups should have annual accounts or a statement of income and expenditure, a clear financial need and an awareness of the effect of the project on the environment.
For start-up grants, grants of up to £250 are also available from start-up groups, but the Town Council will need to know why you want to start the group and how it will be continued, how much support you have from people wanting to join or run the group and how you know there is a need.
Organisations applying which have previously received any type of grant from the Town Council must produce a report and evidence regarding use of that grant, before the new application can be assessed.
Application forms and details are available on the Town Council’s website www.leightonlinslade-tc.gov.uk or from The White House, Hockliffe Street, Leighton Buzzard LU7 1HD. Alternatively, telephone 01525 631920 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The closing date for applications is Friday, March 8.
