Portishead Town Council Grant Awards 

Closed for applications. The next round of applications will open in April 2021.

Portishead Town Council has a commitment to encourage, support and promote voluntary and charitable groups and organisations for the benefit of Portishead residents. The Council aims to make grant awards that bring a direct benefit to the Portishead area, and all or some of its residents.

Timeline and Key Dates

The Grant Award process is open from 15th July 2020 until 30th November 2020.  

Grant applications will be assessed individually and within the context of the grants budget for the year. If all funds are therefore awarded prior to 30th November, the Grant Awards will close earlier.

Grant applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis by the Community Matters Committee and, if a request is for more than £10,000, at the Town Council Meeting. Please click View the Portishead Town Council Schedule of Public Meetings for 2020-2021.
