Apply for Ward Budget funding

Ward Budgets are a resource that our Councillors can use to support local issues and priorities.

Since 2010, the council’s Ward Budget Programme has supported over 2,500 projects to deliver positive local change in Westminster.

Apply for funding

The Ward Budget Programme is now open for applications.

We encourage applications to be submitted at least two months before your project or event.

If you are thinking about submitting a Ward Budget application and would like to speak to someone about this, please contact the team on [email protected].

An initial budget of £46,000 per year is allocated to each ward. This rolls over each year across a 4 year electoral cycle. Councillors can spend it flexibly on projects within their wards that:

  • benefit local residents
  • are managed by an organisation or club (individuals alone cannot be funded)
  • are not against council policy, are unlawful or would adversely affect the council
