Bedwas, Trethomas and Machen Community Council aims to recognise the contribution of individuals and organisations in the community in a number of ways and sets aside a budget allocation each year that is used for this purpose.

Any organisation or group applying for a grant must have members living within the town area who will benefit. Applicants should refer to the Policy on Financial Assistance to establish eligibility. Grants cannot be made to individuals, profit  making organisations, or national UK wide organisations unless the local branch can demonstrate that funds will be used for its own projects. The Community Council does not make loans.
