Rossendale Borough Council

Neighbourhood forum grants

Project Policy and Guidance Notes

View pages in this section


Neighbourhood Forums can give grants of up to £500 to external organisations that can provide added value to the residents of the Borough. The work that the grants will fund must fit in with or complement the priorities identified in the four Neighbourhood Action Plans.

The Neighbourhood Forums delegate authority to consider and allocate council grants to a Working Group of three Rossendale Borough Council Members for each Neighbourhood Forum and a witness from the community voluntary sector.

The Council, when producing its end of year accounts will also publish details of all grants given by the Forums in that year, which organisations received the funding and for what purpose.
