Argyll and Bute Council Third Sector Grants are aimed at supporting communities and vulnerable people, and helping to kick start new projects and events.  

The funding is available to organisations to allow them to deliver the services and/or projects that meet the six objectives detailed in the Single Outcome Agreement.

In addition to providing support on the Third Sector Grant application and process, the Council’s Community Development Team can assist third sector organisations with developing new projects, exploring income generation opportunities, identifying other sources of funding, community engagement and evaluation techniques.

The Council needs to account for all Third Sector Grant funding allocated and it is therefore a requirement for grant recipients to complete all sections of the End of Project Monitoring Report.  The Report for 2015/16 is available to download below, along with a good practice example which may provide some useful guidance on how to complete the form.  Please email completed reports to, ensuring the report has been signed.
