Transparency: Grants to Voluntary, Community & Social Enterprise Organisations

The code requires that local authorities must publish details of all grants to voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations. This can be achieved by either:

  • Tagging and hence specifically identifying transactions which relate to voluntary, community or social enterprise organisations within published data on expenditure over £500 or published procurement information, or
  • By publishing a separate list or register

For each identified grant, the following information must be published as a minimum:

  • Date the grant was awarded
  • Time period for which the grant has been given
  • Local authority department which has awarded the grant
  • Beneficiary
  • Beneficiary’s registration number (where applicable)
  • Summary of the purpose of the grant
  • Amount

Hailsham Town Council publishes this information as a separate list, as available in the Minutes of the Finance, Budget, Resources and Staffing Committee. | Link to 2020/21 Grants.
