Application Guidance Notes

Closing Date - 16th December 2016 

The Town Council recognises the wide diversity of voluntary bodies operating in the Town and the effort which is harnessed for the benefit of the local community.  In its desire to improve the quality of life for people in Banbury, the Council works closely with the voluntary sector and provides grants to boost the funding of a number of good causes. The Council offers both Annual Grants and Small Grants. 

Applications for an Annual Grant are invited each autumn for payment in the next financial year.  Details can be found in the news section of the website from the end of October until the closing date in December. The Town Council is therefore able to assist a wide variety of local organisations with grants to enable them to function for the benefit of all sections of the community.  

The following organisations, or the Banbury Branch of them, will receive grants in 2016/17:
