The Elected Members Ward Budget is included the 2023/24 Revenue Budget. Within this allocation each elected Member is allocated up to £3k (£165k in total across all 55 elected Members) to support local groups and organisations.
A central record of grants allocated will be maintained by the Corporate Governance Team within Legal and Democratic Services – this will reconcile to the grant payments made and record the outcomes achieved through the use of the grant funding.
This is an allocation of existing 2023/24 revenue budget and so is contained within the Council’s current budget envelope.
The individual applications detail the extent to which the initiative will seek to make a positive impact within the local community
