Councillor Divisional Fund

Councillors Divisional Fund SchemePound Coins

A Worcestershire Councillors' Divisional Fund (WCDF) has been created to enable local members to access money to help local initiatives and support 'good works' which play an important role in promoting the economic, social and environmental well-being of communities within Worcestershire.

Payments made from the Worcestershire Councillors' Divisional Fund Scheme 2013/14 (PDF 395 KB)

Each of the 57 members of the Council have an allocation of £10,000 (per financial year), to spend on locally-determined initiatives within their Divisions.  They have reasonable discretion as to how to spend their allocation, as long as they are lawful for the Council, rational and are properly recorded.

The WCDF is aimed at one-off items of expenditure or supporting community activity, local and national charities or voluntary organisations within the local Division.

Formal applications for bids to the WCDF can only be submitted by the local County Councillor; however, individuals or organisations can contact their local Councillor and seek support from the Fund. If you do want to contact your Councillor for support, it would be helpful if you could provide them information on how support from the WCDF would promote or improve the economic, social or environmental well-being of the local area, or those people within it.

Visit the Councillor Search to find out who your local councillor is.

A list of those initiatives which have been supported by councillors so far this year through the WDCF can be found below together with further information on the Divisional Fund.
