Members Ward Fund

The procedure to apply to the Ward Member’s Fund is as follows:

Any resident or community group who wish to apply for funding should contact their local ward councillor either by phone or e-mail requesting a donation giving a brief outline of what they intend the money to be used for.

If the Councillor wishes to support the scheme then they complete an electronic application form which is submitted to Democratic & Member Services at Bedford Borough Council, applying to use their allocated fund for a project within their Ward.


When this application is received, and before accepting the application, the applicant/s will be contacted to verify the following details:

  • The applicant/s must have all relevant policies in place regarding the proposed activity or spend
  • 2 quotes must be submitted for each item of intended purchase
  • The applicant/s must have a relevant bank account applicable to a group/organisation, this cannot have an individual persons name on the account.
  • The applicant/s cannot spend the money retrospectively
