Grants Available

Did you know that Horwich Town Council is now accepting applications from local youth, sporting, cultural, voluntary and community groups for financial assistance from the first round of grant funding awards for the current financial year?

Wright Place

Awards are usually between £100 - £300 for projects that are located in and serve the residents of the Horwich Parish, although larger awards are sometimes given through the Council’s grant scheme.

Deadline for applications is 31st May 2017 for consideration by the Council in June. All applications are considered on merit and are subject to the availability of funds and the criteria set at the time they are received.

Previous grants have included funding to Nasmyth Street Allotments for improvements to the boundary and pathways, Horwich Explorer Scouts towards purchase of camping and the Wright Place Luncheon Club for new kitchen equipment to enable them to continue serving meals to senior citizens.

Application forms are available by calling in at Horwich Community (formerly Resource) Centre on Beaumont Road or Horwich Library or by contacting the Town Clerk on 01204 691090 or alternatively email: townclerk@horwich.gov.uk
