Fleetwood Town Council sets aside an annual budget from the precept to support community projects, events and initiatives through its grant-aid process. To apply for grant-aid your group must be a charitable or non-profit making duly constituted organisation, whose proposal will significantly benefit Fleetwood and its residents. You must also attend the meeting at which your application is considered to present your proposal and answer any questions.

Your application for Grant Aid must be submitted to the office a minimum of 10 working days before the Full Council Meeting (FCM) at which it will be heard. Our FCM’s are on the last Tuesday of every month except September and December for which there are none.

The application form and the policy guidance can be downloaded from the links below. If you have any questions or need assistance regarding a Grant Aid application, please contact our Community Engagement and Development Officer, Lauren Harrison at: [email protected].
