Grants are made on the basis of support to only truly local charities and organisations.
Under other Statutory Powers, Grants are made to several organisations which benefit the local community, and have previously included support for local transport, recreational and sports organisations, as well as local charitable groups.
In the 2018/19 Financial Year £11,950.00 was disbursed in Grants.
