Grants & Donations


Covid-19 Information & Advice | New Community Fund

Parish councillors are aware that the current lockdown is impacting on its communities in many ways and have set up a fund that would be able to receive requests and make donations to mitigate the financial effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. The council has already made donations to the Liskeard & Looe Foodbank and Liskeard Young Farmers recognising that both groups are serving more people during the emergency and their costs have increased. 

Councillors recognise that not every group of volunteers will be constituted, and that some will only have short term aims for the duration of the lockdown. However, applications are welcome from all types of volunteers and volunteering groups, and councillors will make their decisions on a case by case basis. You can read our FAQs here and contact the Clerk’s Office if you would like to nominate a group for a donation. As with all parish council funding, it cannot make donations to benefit individual people or to projects whose life is beyond that of the current emergency. [9/6/20]

Funding for community groups

The parish council has a small amount of funds it can grant and donate each year. Small donations (up to £100) can be agreed at any council meeting throughout the year, but amounts larger than that can only be agreed twice a year in April and November. Read the notes below for guidance and contact the Clerk’s Office if you need any help.
