Town Lottery Grants for Projects Supporting Health and Wellbeing

The Council has a budget of £2,000 from funds raised from the Kettering Community Lottery to give to projects which support mental health and wellbeing, up to a value of £1,000 each.

Please read our grants policy below before applying for a grant.

2022/23 Grants

Town councillors have agreed on funding for community groups in the last round of grants awarded for the 2022/23 financial year.

The money has gone to North Northants First Responders to give training to volunteers, Off The Streets to run anti-knife workshops and Kettering Food Bank.

Grants to celebrate the King's coronation were given to Kettering Sea Cadets, the Crescents Community Centre and the First Responders. The groups have been awarded the grants to boost volunteering in their organisations as part of The Big Help Out initiative on the extra bank holiday in May.

The amount of money given out to organisations around the town now adds up to a total of £34,000 for the past year.
