We may have further money available for another round of the Community Grant in 2019. Keep an eye on the website for any updates.

The guidelines for the 2018 scheme are shown below, these may be different next year but do give an idea of what is likely to be required and what is likely to be eligible should there be a further round of the Community Grant in 2019.
