Groups and organisations across Chorley doing “vital work” could receive a boost to their bank balance.

Chorley Council is offering grants of up to £500 each to groups working in the voluntary, community or faith sector in the borough.

The money will provide a welcome boost to the groups’ funds and could be used to support a variety of projects.

Eligible groups have four weeks to apply for the small community grant funding.

The council’s chief executive, Gary Hall, said: “We’ve put a pot of money aside to help these groups in the borough because they do vital work in our community and we’re keen to support them.

“I’d urge them to get their applications in as soon as possible.”

Groups applying for the funding must meet certain criteria.

They must be voluntary, community or faith sector groups operating in the borough of Chorley and they must have a group bank account.

The organisation or project must be based on local need and individuals cannot apply for the funding.

Groups wishing to apply can find application forms online at

They must be returned to the council before Friday, June 6.
