The information provided is based on the 2023 scheme. As soon as details of the 2024 scheme are announced we will update the details.
The purpose of the Wicklow County Councils Community Award Scheme is to assist local community and voluntary groups, including sporting, arts and cultural organisations that would benefit from small scale or once-off funding to support the groups’ activities i.e. running costs or to develop a particular project. The Award Scheme gives the County Council the opportunity to recognise and value the voluntary contribution made by local groups in their own localities.
The aim of this Fund is to support community and voluntary groups in County Wicklow who wish to undertake projects that will:
- Carry out a service or activity that makes a contribution to the quality of life in their local community.
- Increase voluntary activity,
- Target the socially excluded and increase their opportunities and particularly those who target anti-racism and accessibility issues.
- Recognise the valuable contribution of community and voluntary organisations in Wicklow in some way.
Social inclusion is a central theme of the Programme
The maximum grant available was €500 per organisation – one application only per organisation.
