Whilst we expect Groups and Districts to raise the majority of their funding through local sources, there are cases where the West Sussex County Scout Council can help through a specific targeted grant or a loan.
Applicants will be expected to produce a clear and balanced case for the grant, together with evidence of effective planning, consultation and how it assists the County in achieving its strategic targets toward the 2014 -18 vision.
A copy of the most recent audited accounts must accompany any application.
Grant applications would be considered for 25% of the total cost for projects under £20,000. This is limited to £5,000 for projects costing more than £20,000.
All grant applications require the endorsement of the local District Executive Committee.
Loan applications will be considered on a case by case basis. All loans will require the support and be underwritten by the local District Executive Committee.
When applying for a Grant or Loan you must;-
- Inform your District Commissioner and your District Chairman of your intentions.
- Be able to demonstrate that your project will support the County achieve its development target.
- Ensure that your project in some way meets the Scout Association’s Strategic Vision towards 2018.
Applications can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted to the West Sussex Scouts County Office, Lodge Hill, London Road, Watersfield, Pulborough,West Sussex.
