Our new ‘Go for It Grant’ initiative provides organisations, youth groups and charities the opportunity to benefit from funding awarded by the Town Foundation.

Grants of up to £1000 per application are available for projects that can demonstrate a benefit to their local community, as well as originality and innovation.

To be considered for a grant, you must be able to demonstrate a genuine community-focused project and accurately complete our short application process.
