Call Back Service

Our customer contact team have successfully launched a new 'Call Back Service'. This is an automated call back service, after waiting 60 seconds in the queue, callers are given the option to leave their number for a member of the team to call them back. Numbers then virtually remain in the queue and when the caller becomes first, they will get a call back.

BTAC Small Grant Scheme

The BTAC Small Grant Scheme is for Community Groups and Organisations wanting to contribute directly to their town centre community.

How the scheme operates

The scheme is operated using BTAC's Community Grants Policy with a scoring matrix based on the requirements of the Committee that it be consistent with BTAC's terms of reference; easy to understand; flexible and inclusive; and include a 'pre-assessment' process for officers with only those applications scoring above a defined threshold to be considered by a Working Group of Members to make recommendations back to the Committee.

Who can apply

Are you a fully-constituted Boston-based community group or organisation working to deliver projects for the benefit of residents within any of the town centre wards of Boston?  Then you may qualify for a BTAC Small Grant.

You can apply for up to £1,000 contribution towards a large project or to fund a project in its entirety, whether it is for venue hire, to purchase small items of equipment, to cover insurance costs or to produce publicity materials.

We are committed to working in partnership with local people to deliver the council's overall priorities which are to:
