Newbury Town Council’s Grants, June 2018

£13,750 has been awarded to 19 different organisations this June, including West Berkshire Mencap and Eight Bells for Mental Health, following Newbury Town Council issuing its latest round of grant funding.

This year the Council is focussing on grants for youth organisations, with an additional pot of £10,000 set aside to support the town’s younger generation. Half of this money was distributed at the June meeting of the grants committee with Newbury YMCA Waterside Youth Café and Time to Talk West Berkshire among the recipients.

Cllr Miles Evans, Deputy Leader of Newbury Town Council, said: “As a council, we’re committed to supporting community groups who do such vital work. That’s why we increased our grants budget by £15,000 this year. I’m especially pleased that we’ve been able to support the town’s young people, through our specific youth grant funding.”

Cllr David Fenn, Chair of the Town Council’s Grants Committee, added: “The support of The Good Exchange means that they will match-fund each of our grants, in effect doubling the value of the grant to each successful applicant – a fantastic outcome.”

Further funding will be allocated in November, when the grants committee meets again.

The five youth organisations to benefit in June are:

Newbury YMCA Waterside Youth Café 2018/19 – £1,250
