Newtown Community Fund is a grant that supports projects through community, voluntary or self- help groups. The grant traditionally supports groups which carry out work in the community.

Community groups are invited to apply for the Newtown Community Fund. The Grant traditionally supports groups which:

  • Carry out work in the community
  • Provide a long-term benefit to the community
  • Extend access and participation, increase skill and creativity, or generally improve the quality of life of people in their area
  • Support principles of equal access and opportunity
  • Are not otherwise excluded for the reason of being outside the scope of the scheme

During May the Community Grant Fund awarded just under £5000.00 to local organisations. The successful applicants for the May Community Grants Award are as follows:

  • Newtown & District Civic Society
  • Rekindle Home – Small Steps Project
  • Friends of Cedewain
  • Montgomeryshire Family Crisis Centre
  • Hope Church – Happy Holidays

Cllr John Baker, Chair of the Resources Committee added “Newtown and Llanllwchaiarn Town Council is once again pleased to support organisations within Newtown who do so much for the people living in the area.  In these difficult times I am happy that the Council can, throughout it’s Community Grants scheme, help in some way to improve the lives of the people of Newtown. There will be another opportunity for organisations to apply for grants in the autumn.”

The next available opportunity to apply for the Newtown Community Fund will be at the end of September for the consideration in October.
