Grant application forms are available for non-profit organisations, registered charities or other agencies in Hailsham intending to request funding for new or improved facilities, activities or projects from Hailsham Town Council’s 2017/18 grants budget.

Councillor Chriss Triandafyllou, who sits on the Finance, Budget & Resources Committee, said: “The Town Council is pleased to accept applications for grant funding from local groups and organisations in Hailsham and offer small-scale support to help them with their projects, events and other valuable work in the community.”

“For many years, Hailsham Town Council has awarded grants to fund programs that relate to its grant criteria and considers each application fairly and openly.”

All grant applications will be considered by the Finance, Budget & Resources Committee in early 2017 and notification of the decision on your application will be released in the spring of 2017.

Application forms and grant award criteria are available to download here or by writing to the Town Clerk, Hailsham Town Council, Inglenook, Market Street, Hailsham, BN27 2AE. The deadline for grant aid applications (2017) will be the end of December 2016.

When considering grant applications, the Town Council will take into account the following guidelines:

  • Activities of the organisation or association should be readily available to the community in general.
  • Membership should be appropriate to the activity and should encompass junior, senior, full and part time residents and be available for disabled people if possible.
  • The range of activities undertaken and the programme of the organisation should be available for reference.
  • The current financial situation should be substantiated by either audited accounts or a business plan for a new group or organisation.
  • Groups and organisations should demonstrate that they have applied for financial aid from other sources.
  • Financial aid will not normally be offered to any commercial or national organisation body or group from outside the town unless it can be shown that the local population will be able to derive some benefit from the services provided.
