What are grants for?

The Town Council has a yearly fund to give grants to charitable, voluntary and public sector organisations. This is to support the work carried out by groups who undertake activities that benefit Watton residents. This fund will be divided quarterly.

Who can apply for a grant?

The types of organisation that can apply for grants, for example, Charitable Organisations, Pre-school Playgroups, Youth Clubs, Sports Clubs, Art Groups and Advice Organisations etc.

The fund is intended for projects that will benefit Watton residents as a whole, and so there are some cases where we are not able to provide grants.

These include:

General Appeals (e.g., national/international disasters)

National Organisations without a locally-based group
