Bridport Town Council awards grants each year to local organisations that work for the benefit of the town. The grants are intended for charitable, voluntary or similar bodies and not for private organisations or individuals. We operate two grants schemes each year, the community grants scheme and the West Bay Car Boot Sale grants scheme.
Community Grants Scheme
The Council’s community grants scheme runs once a year, with applications opening in June and grants awarded in September. The scheme for 2021/22 is now closed.
West Bay Car Boot Sale Grants Scheme
The Town Council manages the West Bay Car Boot Sale , and distributes the funds generated from pitch fees in the form of grants to community and voluntary organisations whose work benefits people living in the Bridport Local Area Partnership area. The scheme opens for applications in November, and grants are awarded in January.
The Car Boot Sale Grants Scheme for 2021/22 is scheduled to open for applications in November 2021.
