The current Mayor’s Trust Fund was established in 1981 with the purpose of assisting the Borough’s less fortunate residents by providing support to help make a small difference in their lives that otherwise might not be possible by other sources of funding. As such the Fund is one of last resort.
An application has to be made on behalf of the proposed recipient by a 3rd party. This can be Social Groups, Voluntary Sector Groups, Councillors, Social Care Sector, Housing Sector, Salvation Army or individuals able to verify the circumstances on behalf of the proposed recipient. A proposed recipient can only be nominated once per year for support.
Applications cannot be made by the proposed recipient or a member of their immediate family. Awards will not ordinarily be made in consecutive years.
Recipients must be residents of the Borough.
