Are you involved in a local organisation that requires funding towards a local project?

Shepton Mallet Town Council operates a community grants scheme which awards local organisations and community groups to help achieve their aims and objectives. These can be used to fund either new projects or continued services and may also be used as matched funding.

The Town Council has a policy of assisting local community groups and applications must be from a properly formed group, club, committee or charity, which must show that the group has charitable/community aims whilst benefiting the residents of Shepton Mallet.

The Council operates three different grant programmes:

  • One-off Small Grants – revenue only from £1 to £500 (One-off meaning in relation to a particular project not in any one financial year).
  • One-Off Large Grants – revenue and capital £501 to £2000
  • Strategic Grants – where the council will provide funding for more than one year and supported with a Service Level Agreement (SLA). These will be awarded in exceptional circumstances where the council wishes to commission a service/organisation that it believes is critical to the well-being of the Town

If your organisation is interested in one of our schemes and requires further guidance on whether your community group meets our criteria for financial support, or for an application form, please email or contact the office on 01749 343984 for an informal chat.
