Councillor Sue Mullins, Cabinet member for Community Engagement and Culture, said: “Our small grants have been so successful at stimulating community activities and participation in grassroots volunteering that we have decided to increase the annual pot by £10,000 next year to cover the demand.

“Small grants are available all year round so I encourage local groups with good ideas to apply.”

The small grants scheme is open to all community groups and clubs whose activities take place in, or benefit, the Crawley area. Typically, the council awards a grant or funding contribution to most proposals that are eligible for support and also provides match-funding opportunities.
