Ward Discretionary Fund



Each of the 22 Council Wards receives a Discretionary Budget of £56,932 (for Ward 21 this is £56,930)

The Discretionary Budget is managed by the Ward Manager and applications are considered in consultation with the Ward Elected Members.

Under the guidance agreed some projects will be given priority, including those which attract funding from other sources. However, any reasonable applications, normally from community groups and organisations, will be considered.  It should be noted that the Ward Discretionary Budget will not  be able to support projects which require an ongoing commitment.

In order to ensure a sound audit trail, each project should be accompanied by a completed Ward Discretionary Budget application form which is available through the website. If you want to discuss a potential project or have any queries about this fund please contact your Ward Manager.

The Education Culture and Sport Service has allocated approximately £5000 to each Council Ward to provide grants for local youth work activities.  The purpose of the grants is to support the Council’s youth work policy in Highland.  Click here for further information.
