Guidelines for application:

  • Darwen Community Awards are restricted to voluntary community initiatives within the BB3 Postcode area.
  • Applications for awards can be made on behalf of groups within the Darwen boundary (BB3) whose purpose is to serve the community.
  • Awards shall neither be made to individual persons/commercial ventures, nor to political groups and are not intended for the purpose of meeting routine maintenance or on-going costs.
  • The awards scheme shall be managed jointly by Crown Paints and Darwen Town Council Communities Committee, who shall jointly assess applications and grant awards accordingly.
  • It is helpful for applications to be accompanied by as much information as possible: e.g. number of individuals likely to benefit from the initiative; details of current bank balance; photographs, quotations, etc. Without this information your application cannot be considered.
  • Where the application is to cover the purchase of furniture, equipment or third-party services, priority will be given to users of local suppliers.
  • Shortlisted applicants should be prepared to attend an informal meeting with the judging committee.
  • Awards to successful applicants shall be distributed on three occasions during the year: at the St George’s Day event (April), at Darwen Gala Day (August) and at Darwen’s Christmas event (November/December).

    Only one application per group or initiative per year.
