Seaford Town Council was pleased to be able to run its Annual Grants Scheme which ran from April 3rd 2018 to May 18th 2018.

Each year the Council extends the opportunity to local community groups, charities or voluntary organisations to apply for a financial grant from the Council’s grants pool to aid them in providing facilities and services for the people of Seaford.

The 2018/19 scheme is now closed with thirty-four applications totalling an overwhelming £55,048.   With a budget of £23,000, the Finance and General Purposes Committee looked in depth at each application on its own merit and in line with the Council’s Grants Policy, nominated awards accordingly.  The Council endeavoured to award as much of or the entire amount requested where the necessary criteria had been met, however has had to take in to account the budgetary constraints and ensuring fairness across the scheme.  This resulted in many applicants receiving less than requested and in some cases, it was regretful that applicants had to be turned down.

A total of £5,350 was awarded for small grants and £17,650 was awarded for the large grants all of which directly benefit the residents of Seaford and the Town itself.

Councillor Mark Brown, Chairman of the Finance & General Purposes Committee, said: “Once again I am thrilled that the Council has been in a position this year to award the full £23,000 grants budget to such great causes.  This year saw an overwhelming response with a total of £55,048 and it was regretful that we were not able to award all the applicants or award as much as we would have liked to others.   I would like to thank all the organisations who applied for the continued hard work and contribution to the Town and the Council is pleased to assist and support these organisations where possible.”

The 2019/20 Grants scheme is due to open in April 2019.
