As part of the council’s community grant funding work, West Lindsey District Council is pleased to confirm they are running a West Lindsey Community Funding Event on Thursday 10th August 2023 (6pm to 8pm) at Hemswell Court in Hemswell Cliff. Whilst the grant funds are already open for applications, this event will help further launch and promote them to community groups, charities, parish/town councils and social enterprises.

The event will be opened by the Leader of the Council and West Lindsey officers will be providing an insight into their community funds including how to develop projects and make grant applications.

The council will also have featured speakers attending from organisations previously funded by the council such as:

Joe Bartrop will talk about developing and raising funds for bold and innovative projects based on their experience of creating an award winning heritage centre.

  • Councillor Initiative Fund (Small grants for community/volunteer led projects)
  • Community Action Fund (Revenue grants for community actvities)
