Consultation on community and voluntary sector grants in Lewes district

We are seeking the views of key stakeholders over a set of proposed approaches to awarding grants to the voluntary sector in Lewes 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. 

The current policy can be downloaded here - Lewes voluntary sector grants

From 18 September to 11 December 2020 we are inviting all community and voluntary sector organisations in the district to express their preferences from a set of four possible options. We would also like to know if you have suggestions for how else we could approach the awarding of these grants.

We have provided an online survey for you to submit your comments:
