The Alton Society has a Grants Policy, designed to help local organisations promote new projects or support existing ones. It can be used to start up a new group. The criteria is outlined in the Alton Society Grants Policy and you can apply by completing the application form.
The upper limit will be £250 per grant, and the application must tie in with the Society’s aims and objectives. In the past we have helped small groups such as Wey Valley Radio to buy equipment and supported the Friends of Alton Station in trying to save Alton’s historic railway bridge. This new policy will help us decide who needs assistance, and it will guide applicants on what they need to do to apply.
