Grants of up to £2,000 are available to help organisations support those in crisis.
Following the impact of the pandemic on income and employment and the continuing increase in cost of living, people are finding it harder to make ends meet and low income households are having to choose between food and fuel. These small grants are available to help organisations provide the much needed support that low income families need.
As well as the immediate need for support with food and fuel, we appreciate that there has also been an impact on mental health as a result of the pandemic and more people are isolated.
The types of projects we hope to fund are:
- Food Poverty projects
- Information, Advice & Guidance projects
- Social groups
- Projects supporting the homeless
- Or any other project which would benefit those in crisis
Decisions will be made regularly as applications are received and until this year’s allocation of funding has been committed.
