Community Grants

The community fund provides grants of up to £1,000 for capital projects that help and support the community.

Grants for the 2023/24 year have now been allocated but we will invite further applications for 2024/5 in January/February 2024.

Grants can be used for the purchase of materials and equipment, or the provision of a service that makes Lyme Regis a better place to live, work and play.

Applications will only be considered from non-profit making organisations who do not provide grants or donate monies to others, and funding cannot be used for retrospective expenditure.
