County Councillor Locality Budgets

Stronger Communities Inspire Funds

Locality Budgets allow County Councillors to recommend allocating small amounts of funding to support projects and activities that directly promote the social, economic or environmental wellbeing of communities in their Division. 

County Councillors are encouraged to consider how their recommendations can be used to attract additional funding, volunteers and community engagement - multiplying the overall impact. 

For help with Locality Budgets contact Louise Marwood on 01609 532656 or via email on

The Stronger Community Inspire Fund is primarily about supporting local social action. We want to encourage people to get involved in their local community by offering small grants to help establish new services, events or activities that:

  • Increase social interaction;

  • Encourage neighborliness; and

  • Improve the wellbeing of individuals and communities.

The grant may be used to:

  • Fund events or activities;

  • Help with start-up costs for new projects or services; and

  • Purchase small items of equipment.

Grants will be made as a one-off contribution to the cost of a project. Applications should demonstrate the project can be delivered without needing future support from this fund.

For Stronger Communities information contact Mark Taylor on 01609 533914 or via email on
