Community Response Fund
CWaC have established a ‘Community Response Fund’ to support community groups through this unprecedented time. The focus of the fund is to offer community organisations emergency funding to respond to issues as a result of Coronavirus.
Fantastic numbers of residents have pledged their support for the coordinated response to this current situation. The Community Response Fund will help community groups to provide valuable services. It could give support with things like training volunteers, administration, marketing, fuel, supplies and other costs.
Who can apply?
- Any group based in Cheshire West and Chester
- Voluntary organisations, community groups, small charities and other not-for-profit organisations
Applications to the CRF will be considered from groups that show they are providing a service or initiative that benefits others in their community. Any grants over £500 will be considered but it is expected that most grants will be around £2,000. If groups do not have their own bank account, support can still be given, it will perhaps just need to be channelled through an alternative (such as a church, parish council or other constituted organisation).
