Portishead Town Council Community Grants

At Portishead Town Council, we are committed to encouraging, supporting and promoting organisations that make life better for Portishead residents. We aim to make grant awards that bring a direct benefit to the Portishead area, to all or some of its residents.

Applications for our 2021 Community Grants are now open! This round of applications will close on November 30th 2021.
