Morecambe Town Council gives grants to support local organisations and projects for the benefit of Morecambe and its residents.

The scheme is open to any organisation to ensure that public funds are used in ways that benefit groups of residents and protect the interests of residents in the future. The Council therefore encourages applications from local community-based not-for-profit or charitable organisations including voluntary groups, societies, clubs (including sports clubs and youth clubs), playgroups, and schools (for activities such as educational trips or special events not on the normal curriculum) to name a few.

Each application will be considered on its own merit, however the benefit to the Morecambe Town Council area or inhabitants must be commensurate with the expenditure.

Please download the grant criteria and application form below and return to If you require any assistance in completing your application, or require large format print, please contact

Please note the Committee meet every two months and it may take up to 12 weeks for applicants to receive a decision.

If you are looking to apply for a grant to support a festival or event rather than a community group, please visit our Festivals, Sponsorships and Events Grants page for the relevant grant criteria and application form.
