Community Development Fund

Chard Town Council is committed to encouraging community development and aims to work closely with organisations and groups by financially supporting projects that benefit local residents. The Council has a duty to ensure that grants awarded under this scheme aim to make a difference to the quality of life of people living in Chard.

Chard Town Council recognises and values the importance of partnership working with public and private sector organisations as well as community groups and voluntary organisations and aims to support and strengthen community participation, activities and events and to help develop a sustainable welcoming community.

Applications can be submitted at any time. The panel meets bimonthly to review any applications that are sent in.
