Grants

The contribution made by the numerous organisations to the well-being of the local community in Broadstairs & St. Peter's is highly valued. In support of such voluntary efforts the Town Council allocates an annual budget to award grants to voluntary and community groups within the parished area, subject to available resources. The purpose of such grants is to support voluntary and community initiatives that benefit the residents of Broadstairs & St. Peter's.

The Town Council receives many applications that meet all of the grant criteria: it regrets that it cannot award grants to all of the very good events and organisations that it would wish to fund.

Grant funding from public funds is discretionary. No organisation or event is entitled to receive funds and applications which do not meet the grant criteria will not be funded.

To view the Grant Criteria adopted on the 25th September 2017, please click here.
