  • Voluntary, community groups, local and national Charities

They make their money from selling goods and services in the open market, but they reinvest their profits back into the business or the local community’. Such organisations must have a minimum of three unrelated Directors.

Grants are available for:

  • Community building provision and improvements, (i.e. Village Halls and Community Centres)
