Grant Aid

Grant application will open on Monday 26 March 2018.

Are you a local group or organisation working for the benefit of Thame and its residents? If so, you could be eligible for a grant from the Town Council. Our grant scheme aims to fund projects that address the needs, aspirations and issues of the people in our community. It supports initiatives that develop skills, improve health, revitalise the local environment and enable people to become more active citizens. If you are working on a project that does just that, why not apply below!

Grants of up to £2,400 are available to community or not-for-profit groups that are working for the benefit of the people of Thame and Moreton and do not have access to funds from umbrella or parent organisations.

The Town Council awarded local community organisations with £14,750 via its annual Grant Scheme in 2017. Last year’s successful award recipients were: Lighthouse Thame, Life Education Thames Valley, Lord Williams’s School Day Nursery, Oxfordshire Association for the Blind, Thame Arts & Literature Festival, Thame & District Day Centre, Thame & District Twinning Association, Thame Sports Club, Thame Youth Projects Group and Thame Youth Theatre 

Are you eligible?

  • Is your organisation or project local to Thame?
  • Does it benefit the town and its inhabitants?
  • Do you need funding for a capital project?
  • Have you secured (or intend to secure) other sources of funding for your project? 

If you have answered yes to all the questions, you may be eligible for a grant from Thame Town Council. If you are unsure, please download and read the Guidance below or call us on 01844 212833.
