Community Grants

Flaunden Parish Council has a small budget for the award of grants to the Community. 

The Council can only make awards using certain legal powers and must be confident that any grant awarded will benefit Flaunden residents.

The amount of the award will be at the discretion of the Parish Council.


Applications must be made on the Parish Council's Grant application form:
