Wem Town Council operates a community grant scheme the aim of which is to ensure that public funds are used in ways that assist local clubs, societies and organisations to enable them to develop and achieve their respective aims and objectives where these benefit the town and the local community.

The Council encourages applications from local community-based ‘not-for-profit’ or charitable organisations, e.g. voluntary groups, societies, clubs (including new start-ups), sports clubs, youth clubs and playgroups. Groups within the Town Council’s area may apply, those outside the Town who can demonstrate direct benefit to the residents of the town will be eligible to apply for consideration by the Council. All organisations applying for a grant must;

•be of a non-commercial nature
•have a constitution, set of rules or documented aims and objectives
•have a bank account with at least two signatures

The Town Council cannot give financial assistance to individuals under this scheme nor will it consider retrospective applications where the activity or project has already been carried out.
The purpose for which the grant is made must be in the interest of all or some of the inhabitants of Wem. All applications are to be made on the Town Council’s grant application form which can be obtained direct from the Town Council or downloaded from the website, www.wem.gov.uk Applications for funding must be received by 4pm Friday 10thJanuary 2020 for consideration at the January meeting of the Town Council.
