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]

Small Donations & Community Grants

Following on from its review of the Grants & Donations scheme in May 2019, councillors have agreed to continue with its policy of making awards to voluntary groups who work inside the parish. You can read about the changes they have made in this Grants Explainer, and download our Grants & Donations FAQ  here.

If you would like to make an application, please read our Terms and Conditions, and if your bid is for more than £100, you will need to use our Application Form. If you need this in an alternative format (for example, as a Word document), contact the Clerk’s Office and we can send you a copy to you.

How long do I have to apply?

You can make your application anytime, but we need to receive them before our meeting. Applications for these grants need to be received before 30 September for a decision at the council’s November meeting. Applications for next year need to be received by the last day of February for decisions made at the council’s April meeting.
