Looe Town Council has a commitment to encourage, support and promote volunteer organisations and charities within Looe for the benefit of the town. Applicants must explain how a grant will support the Council’s vision for an improved quality of life and environment for Looe as a great place in which to live, work, visit and invest.

The Town Council makes an annual budget provision for community grants but has limited financial resources and may refuse funding applications or reduce the level of support requested. Grants awarded do not set precedents for future awards.

Community Grants come from taxpayer funds and a key principle of this policy is to ensure that grant expenditure is open and transparent. Decisions relating to grant applications for up to £1,000 are delegated to the Finance and Strategy Committee. Applications for grants above £3,000 will be considered by Full Council. Applicants are encouraged to look at alternative sources of funding in addition to our community grant scheme.

In the last Council Year May 2023 – May 2024 the following organisations received funding;

Looe Lugger Regatta

Looe in Bloom

Looe Defibrillator Appeal

Christmas Lights Fund

Looe Community Land Trust

Moor to Sea Project
