Grants Application 2021/22

Updated 28.06.2021

Westbury Town Council considers grant applications from voluntary organisations and groups, who help to make Westbury a great place to live.

The town council aims to promote a healthy and cohesive community by using its Grant Aid Scheme to provide financial support for community groups working for the benefit of residents of Westbury.

The town council recognises and supports the valuable contribution made by the voluntary and “not for profit” sector to the well-being of our community.

Update 28.06.2021 – the deadline for receiving grant applications has now closed.

Review of applications will take place by 31st July 2021 for approval by Town Council during September 2021.

If restrictions allow, the town council hopes to hold an awards evening on Wednesday 20th October 2021 and successful applicants will be invited to join us.

Grants awarded 23rd October 2019

The town council awarded grants to almost 30 organisations for the purchase or equipment or to support a specific activity. The ages of those who will benefit from these grants range from the very young to the young at heart. We have supported sporting activities, music and arts, care and welfare. We have contributed to tackling such issues as loneliness and isolation through voluntary organisations who support the most vulnerable in our town.

We are always humbled by the dedicated and selfless volunteers who give so much to our community and we are committee to continuing our support.
