Community groups and organisations in South Kesteven will be given a financial helping hand thanks to a new councillor grant scheme.

SKDC’s Ward Member Grant Scheme launched at the beginning of April, giving district councillors a new funding stream to support grassroots projects throughout the area.

Each of the authority’s 56 councillors will be allocated £1,000 to award to projects and initiatives which benefit the community.

Cllr Nick Neilson, SKDC’s Cabinet member for Communities, said the scheme aims to encourage community-led initiatives, supported by local councillors, who will play an active part in helping their communities deliver their ambitions.

The council already offers the South Kesteven Community Fund, which funds community projects with grants up to £10,000 and community events with grants up to £5,000.
