Voluntary groups can find out more about grant funding at an open event on Wednesday, July 24.

GBC logoThe Guildford and Waverley Voluntary Grants Panels award funding to organisations who provide services to local people.

To be eligible for a grant, the voluntary group must:

  • promote independence
  • promote social inclusion
  • support vulnerable people
  • make communities safer
  • support carers or
  • facilitate and promote better health in the local community.

Cllr Sarah Creedy, Lead Councillor for Housing and Social Welfare, said: “Local voluntary organisations provide vital support services to our residents. The grants round for 2014-15 opens at the beginning of August. I hope as many groups as possible can make it along to our event to find out how the whole process works and how each application is assessed.”

Panel representatives will give a presentation and advice and answer questions at Shalford Village Hall from 10.30am to 1pm.

The Voluntary Grants Panels include Guildford and Waverley Borough Councils and Surrey County Council. The two panels work closely together to award small grants of up to £2,500, or larger funding for major projects.

Applicants can apply to both panels for funding by using a single application form.
