Falkirk Council - Community Grant Scheme
The Community Grant Scheme aims to support community groups and voluntary organisations to deliver projects that will make a difference to people living in the Falkirk Council area. The priorities for community grant funding are:
- People: Projects that foster good community relationships between people. Projects working with people who are disadvantaged or with protected characteristics are more likely to be successful particularly if the application can provide evidence of how people are coming together to improve relationships between people and communities.
- Place: Projects that encourage people to take pride in their community. Projects that clearly set out the history or culture of the community they are celebration are more likely to be successful.
- Partnership: Projects that support the Council's approach to early intervention by providing services so that people can live full, independent and positive lives.
