What we hope to achieve through the CCG grants
We recognise the value that voluntary and community groups add to life in North Devon, and CCGs offer a way for our councillors to help support these groups and the local community. Voluntary and community groups are often at the heart of our communities and in these times of austerity, can be essential to improving the delivery of public services and improving community cohesion. Our CCGs can also be used as match-funding for organisations to attract other funding from external sources.
Our vision in providing grant aid is to:
⦁ support the economic, environmental, cultural and social welfare of local communities
⦁ value the contribution made by unpaid workers
⦁ encourage a vibrant voluntary sector
Grants may be offered to support the running costs of a local organisation providing services to the community, toward a new or re-furbished facility, toward the costs of an event, toward environmental or open space community projects.
