Grants and Donations

Ditchling Parish Council is keen to support initiatives in the local community and has an annual budget to provide organisations for funding to support projects in the parish.

Applications are invited every year. They should be submitted by the 1st December so the council can consider them at the December parish council meeting. The grant application form and grants policy can be found on the Policies and Procedures page.
