From work placements to wildflowers - Community Grants awarded by Crewe Town Council

Crewe Town Council has announced the latest successful submissions from the Community Grant Scheme. The Council allocates funding and grants up to £2,500 to community organisations for projects and activities that directly benefit the community within the Crewe Town Boundary.

Seven grants in total were approved from the latest round of applications. Four of the successful applications were specifically aimed at young people with a focus upon developing skills, gaining experience and encouraging interaction with others. The remaining awards were made to support local wildlife, encourage dancing for wellbeing in those aged 60+ and enabling supported adults in Crewe to experience the outdoors.

The Crewe Town Council Community Grant Scheme is open for applications throughout the year, with quarterly submission deadlines for applications to be considered by the Community Plan committee.

The next deadline for applications is Sunday 7th August 2022 at midnight.
