Chiltern Community Grant Aid Scheme 2019/20

Community Grants

The aim of the Chiltern Community Grant Aid Scheme 2019 /20 is to work in partnership with local voluntary organisations helping them become actively involved in their local community and so improve community services that enhance and protect the quality of life in Chiltern District.


Chiltern Community Grant Aid is awarded to enable local organisations to become more involved in their community by acting as a catalyst to empower local people, adding value to the social, economic and environmental wellbeing of Chiltern District. By helping improve local services and facilities the grant could for example support community safety initiatives, children and young people, older people or intergenerational activities or support the operation of community facilities e.g. libraries and youth facilities.

The scheme should support Chiltern District Council's corporate aims as well as the Community and Wellbeing Plan aims and any of the Council's other key strategies including  Chiltern's Open Space Strategy ,  Community Safety Partnership Plan and  Chiltern and South Bucks Joint Sustainable Community Strategy - Aims and Objectives.
