Grants

Starting in 2018 Lowestoft Town Council will be awarding grant money to organisations for the benefit of Lowestoft. Grant applications are considered twice a year at the June and December Full Council Meetings.

Along with a completed application form can you please also send us the following with your grant application:

  • Your constitution
  • Your business plan
  • Your financial accounts
  • Your equality policy and whistleblowing policy
  • Your safeguarding policy
  • The length of time your business has been established
  • The minutes of your last meeting
  • Any DBS checks that are needed
  • A cost breakdown of the amount requested for the project
  • If you have been awarded a grant from us in the past, a report on that project and the reason another grant is needed

If you are awarded a grant can you please let us know how the project went after it has been completed. If you have any questions about grants or to request a grant application form please email admin@lowestofttowncouncil.gov.uk.

In response the COVID-19 pandemic, the Town Council's standard grant awarding policy has been suspended until April 2021. Grant awarding funds have been further increased and allocated to be entirely dedicated to COVID-19 support and recovery. Groups and organisations who are helping with support and recovery from the 2020 pandemic - including the heritage and culture sector - and wishing to apply for a grant should read the revised policy carefully. Decisions will be made as soon as practical following receipt of a fully completed application. The post COVID-19 grant application form can be downloaded via the following link: Post COVID-19 Grant Application Form and Policy
