Voluntary and community sector
Funding is available for voluntary and key service provider organisations operating in support of elderly/vulnerable/children. A fixed grant of either £5,000 or £10,000 will be allocated to organisations, that meet our criteria and provide services to elderly, vulnerable and young. They will be asked to provide details of what the funds are for. This may be providing services and support to one or more of the above groups to help the organisation either deliver additional services to meet increasing demands or to maintain existing services where the organisation is experiencing immediate financial pressure and uncertainty because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic such as higher staff absences, fewer volunteers and lower donations.
To apply for funding you need to complete a e-form application. On the form we ask that you please outline your reasons for application, including how you intend to allocate funding, identifying any financial or other pressures created by the pandemic and demonstrating how the funding will enable you to increase or maintain the services you deliver.
Examples of service areas include (but not exhaustive):
- Community Connections
- Information and advice
- Mental Health
- Respite Care
- Domestic Violence
Note that with the government provide increasing support, this will be monitored to avoid duplication of funding, for example the recent salary cover. Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis in view of the urgency of need.
