Community Chest grants

If you run a voluntary community, sport, play or art group - or you're thinking of setting one up - we may be able to help with funding.

Grants are available to groups or individuals. In the past, we've helped a variety of groups including Brownies and Guides, veterans, pensioner groups, and music, church and health groups.

To apply for help download an application form, complete it and send it to: Member Services, Borough Solicitor's Office, West Lancashire Borough Council, 52 Derby Street, Ormskirk L39 2DF.

The council will give funding if you meet the set criteria. Please read the guidance notes at the start of the application before filling it in. Funding decisions are made three times a year.
