Community Leadership Scheme

We operate a scheme to provide small grants to community, voluntary, youth and other local organisations. Its aim is to support worthwhile projects and initiatives that will benefit local communities.


The members' Community Leadership Scheme allocates to each of our 64 county councillors an annual fund of £3,860 which can be used to support projects in their Division. 

Organisations seeking support under the scheme should contact their local county councillor explaining the nature of the project, the amount sought, what other funding may be available, and how it will benefit the community.

Find out who your local county councillor is (opens in a new window).

The scheme is designed to meet one-off costs.

It is for the local county councillor to recommend which projects should be supported under the scheme.
