Community Grant Scheme

Diss Town Council is committed to assisting voluntary and not-for-profit organisations working for the benefit of Diss residents.

 

One of the ways this is done is through financial grants.

 

Our priorities and criteria

 

We’re particularly interested in applications that support our town’s distinction and heritage, partnership and synergy, and community and people. 

Our Community Grant supports local groups who meet at least two of the following:

 

  • Provide a service that benefits the residents of Diss as a whole

  • Provide a service that benefits a specific category of residents of Diss, particularly disadvantaged or vulnerable sections of the population

  • Provide a service or facility not currently offered elsewhere in Diss

  • Add to or improve existing facilities

  • Make better use of under-used Town Council facilities (such as the DYCC or sports ground).

  • Are freely available to all sections of the community
