If you are involved with an organisation or charity that benefits the residents of Newbury, don’t miss your chance to apply for grant funding for a special project or core costs.

To apply you must register with The Good Exchange and complete the grant application process by 19 August 2020. All applications for funding that are on the Good Exchange website by this date, and posted since 1 November 2019, will be considered if they fulfil the Town Council’s criteria. The Council’s criteria for grant funding can be found on our website

The Grant Sub-Committee of Newbury Town Council will meet on 1 September 2020 to consider the applications.

The total grant fund available is £16,500 and The Good Exchange has kindly agreed to match fund all the grants, making the total available £33,000.


Priority will be given to organisations which:

  • Are based within the boundary of Newbury Town Council or which serve wholly or mainly the residents of Newbury.
  • Would give benefit to the greatest number and range of Newbury town residents.
  • Provide a benefit for the wider community beyond progressing the interest of its members.
  • Have made an effort to raise funds themselves and are not reliant on donations to fund the total project
  • Show a commitment to sustainability.
  • Show a commitment to equality and diversity

In addition

  • Grants will not be awarded to bodies for activities which are statutorily funded.
  • Priority will be given to those organisations whose objectives meet the priorities and targets laid down in the Council’s Strategy.
  • Preference will be given to organisations that have not received a grant from Newbury Town Council in recent years.


  • Application to the Good Exchange is complete and all required documentation received by the deadline
  • Application assessed against the above criteria
  • Short-listed applicants MAY BE invited to attend the scheduled Grant Sub-Committee meeting to make a short presentation and answer questions from Members of the Grant Sub-Committee.
