Benbecula Community Council is on the lookout for bright spark ideas they could support from their latest tranche of grant funding.

Projects must fit a particular set of criteria and be emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

However, time is of the essence as the paperwork to fund eligible projects must be completed by Friday, January 27, 2023.

Dave Adey of the community council outlined that projects must enhance the prospects for sustainable community-based economic activity or improve amenities for young people. However, other projects would not be ruled so long as they were within the eligibility rules.

Quoting from the funding notification received, he said applications must be submitted by the community council for the area, either as the applicant in its own right or as a sponsor of a project initiated within the community.

Each community council is limited to submitting one application in any financial year and the maximum grant available is £1,000.
