Consultation on community and voluntary sector grants in Lewes district

From 18 September to 11 December 2020 we invited all community and voluntary sector organisations in Lewes district to express their preferences from a set of four possible options for approaches to awarding grants to the voluntary sector in the district. 

The council highly values the contributions that community and voluntary groups play in delivering services to our residents. Our current policy is to offer grant funding to a small number of organisations which provide essential services to our residents, particularly those experiencing hardship or disadvantage, or which play a key role providing infrastructure services to enable and support a thriving community and voluntary sector in the district.
