What is an Area Board?
Area boards exist to work alongside other organisations to make things happen in the community. These groups can include town and parish councils, voluntary and community groups, youth organisations, sports clubs and local charities.
Area Boards are a way to bring local decision making into the heart of the community, not like old-fashioned council meetings, but with lots of opportunities for local people to get involved.
Meetings take place in each community area and between these meetings different task groups consisting of local people, Wiltshire Council staff and councillors tackle local issues and find solutions to meet local priorities.
An important role of the area boards is to provide grants to community groups via three separate funding schemes.
Youth funding allocated in partnership with local youth networks helping to provide positive activities for young people in the target age range of 13-19.
Health and Wellbeing groups help to award funding for services that support older or vulnerable people from our communities.
Capital funding for local groups, helping to purchase equipment, assets, refurbish existing buildings or build new ones.
