Beverley’s new Mayor, Councillor Linda Johnson, has started her Mayoral Year by helping to launch Beverley Town Council’s Strategic Partnership Grants.
For several years, the Town Council has supported a range of local groups, events, and projects via a grants scheme.
Successful applicants have shown how their work is beneficial to residents or the town as a whole.
However, the Town Council has identified the need for continuing, strategic support to help ongoing projects or recurring events.
Councillor Johnson said:
“Following the difficult year we have all experienced with Covid-19, a major focus of my Mayoral year will be to raise the profile of local groups carrying out amazing work, whilst also encouraging people to work together as the pandemic hopefully comes to an end and the town opens up again.”
“As a Town Council, we want to help with this, which is why we have developed a new Strategic Partnership Grants scheme, as we know a barrier to sustainability is often having to apply each and every year for funds, which means many organisations have to spend valuable time and effort simply making sure they can survive.”
The Strategic Partnerships are for established, ongoing projects, such as annual or bi-annual events, ongoing services, and longer-term project delivery.
Funding is agreed on a three-year rolling basis, reviewed annually. The maximum an applicant can apply for is £3,000 per year for three years.
In addition to seeking funds, applicants are also encouraged to see how else the Town Council may be able to support them in other practical ways.
