Grants for small councils from the Transparency Fund – final deadline February 2018

Time is running out for parish councils with a turnover of less than £25,000 to bid for grants from the Transparency Fund. This November two councils, Down Ampney and Sevenhampton, received £2500 and £1000 respectively from the fund. The funding is available for websites, laptops and associated costs. If you set up a website or purchased a laptop since April 2015 solely to meet the requirements of the Code and have not claimed before, you can claim costs back to 2015. There is a monthly round of funding and the very last date to apply is 9 February 2018.

Please email admin@gaptc.org.uk for an application form and guidance.
