The Parish Council provides grants to local organisations. These are normally groups that are run by or for the people of Buckland Brewer or organisations that can demonstrate that local residents benefit from their services. Grant applications are normally invited in August/September for consideration at the October parish council meeting. Applicants will be asked to submit a short explanation of what they intend to use the grant for, how much they need and their other fund-raising activities. They will also be asked to supply a set of the last two years' audited accounts.

For more information or to apply for a grant, please contact the Parish Clerk by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or through the contact page.
