Support for Organisations & Community Groups

  • We give grants to organisations or groups which benefit the residents of Chippenham.
  • Organisations do not need to be registered as charities provided that they are not for profit, not subject to UK tax rules and that the purpose they are applying for a grant is charitable and will benefit the local community.
  • Our grants to organisations and groups include funding for rent, resources, project costs, equipment and training.
  • There are some things that we may not be able to fund, for example, as a general rule, we do not fund salaries. Funding requests for capital projects such as improvements to infrastructures and fixed assets will be considered on a case by case basis.
  • We will also not provide funding to any organisation or group for:
    • the advancement of religion
    • political activities
    • animal welfare
