Grant Aid 2024-2025

Grants update for 2024-2025 

To help reduce this year’s costs and keep the precept increase as low as possible, Thame Town Council have taken the difficult decision to pause their annual Community Grant Scheme. Whilst this does not include the grants given to the Red Kite Family Centre, Thame Youth Projects, Thame Senior Friendship Centre, and the Citizens Advice Bureau, it does mean that there will not be opportunities for other local groups to bid for funds this year. The Council will review this decision before the 2025/26 budget is set and will aim to incorporate funding assistance to the scope of work for the
new fundraiser / grants officer role.
