Community grants

Household support funding

The Department for Work and Pensions has provided Ealing Council with household support funding to provide support to vulnerable households and families with children during the winter period. This grant funding is time limited, and the grant needs to be spent by 31 March 2024. The council would like to invite local voluntary and community groups to apply for funding to enable them to increase their capacity or to provide additional support to the residents. In particular, the council would like voluntary and community groups to provide support to individuals and households who have not been included in the groups already identified by the council to ensure that access to support is maximised and that a wide range of support is available to the most vulnerable residents across the borough.

If your group is already delivering support to vulnerable individuals and households, has a payment system in place, and feels that they would be able to help, there is more information and an application form available

The closing date for applications is 5pm on Monday 19 June 2023.
