Discretionary Grants

Tupton Parish Council is funded by the residents of Tupton and therefore has only limited funds available to assist community organisations located and working in the parish. The total amount made available for discretionary grants is determined annually by the Finance & General Purposes Committee.
Subject to funding being available Tupton Parish Council is committed to providing assistance and support to local community groups which are set up to promote community life for Tupton residents.
The Council's financial support is provided by way of grants/donations which are decided against criteria set by, and which can be amended from time to time by, Tupton Parish Council.
The Parish Council believes that voluntary groups benefit the wider community and that each should have equal opportunity to access the discretionary grant fund; limits are therefore placed on the number of applications and the total amount of funding any one organisation may apply for in each year.

Tupton Parish Council has a duty to provide services to the local community. The Council cannot provide grant funding to organisations which would be unsustainable without direct funding from the parish precept; and will not consider grants/donations to any organisation which does not fully adhere to the Council's values statement.
