Community Grants

We’re keen to support local organisations, groups and charities who provide support and opportunities for people living and working in the town. The Town Council offers grants to help with many different activities across the community. Grants are currently made annually and awarded in January each year. Applications have to be submitted in November although there is also an opportunity for late grant applications to be made.

Flitwick Town Council agreed to support a number of local groups and organisations through this grant scheme.

If you would like more information on the grant application process or for a copy of the application form please contact paulafrost@flitwick.gov.uk

Flitwick Combined Charities

Flitwick Combined Charities provide Educational Grants and Relief in Need grants for Flitwick residents.

Resident Driven Projects

The Resident Driven Projects initiative give you the opportunity to gain funding for a project that you lead on with the support of the Town Council. This exciting opportunity is something quite different to a grant as it gives you the chance to deliver a project with the help of the Council.

To be eligible the following criteria must be met:

• Direct benefit to Flitwick residents
• Wide appeal to all parts of the community
• Costs to include both capital and maintenance
• Deliverable and cost not to exceed £10,000

Work is continuing on the first Resident Drive Projects chosen when the initiative was launched in 2018. The three projects are all for Manor Park:

A wildflower meadow
A pond dipping platform
Three uniquely carved natural benches

We hope residents will be able to enjoy the benefits of these projects at Manor Park for many years to come.
