Our community meetings take place every quarter, with the intention of bringing the council and the communities in our city's wards closer together.
The meetings give residents the opportunity to work with us, and other agencies such as the police and NHS, to identify local issues and improve their neighbourhoods. All ward residents are welcome to attend.
Each ward meeting has small amounts of funding to support projects which benefit the local community.
The documents at the bottom of the page explain the types of projects which can be funded, who can make a proposal and how this can be done.
Ward community funding
Each ward is allocated a yearly budget which can be used to support projects that bring benefits to the community within the ward. The application process for 2017/18 opened on 5 April 2017. Please ensure you read the guide to ward funding attached below, which explains the new process.
Applications are considered by ward councillors three times per year. The deadlines for submission are:
- 31 January
- 31 May
- 30 September.
Please contact us if you need further help or advice on completing it.
If you require support to access the web application form please feel free to visit any of our libraries and multi-service centres, where we will guide you to the appropriate section online using our free public access computers.
