Overview of Recommendation Process

Applications fitting criteria will be considered by a funding panel comprising of representatives of each of the Community Council areas, and at least one elected member.

The total annual budget for grants is £25,112, and the Panel considers all applications that meet the funding criteria until the fund for that year has been fully allocated. As a result, the Panel will recommend to fully fund the project, offer partial funding, or decline to recommend an award.

The Neighbourhood Network will make recommendations to Locality Manager based on Funding Panel discussions.
