Neighbourly Community Fund
With the support of our partner businesses M&S, Lidl, Aldi, Danone and Coca-Cola European Partners, Neighbourly are launching a series of micro-grants of up to £400, to support good causes that are helping communities affected by the new Coronavirus outbreak.
Grants will be awarded to existing members of Neighbourly in UK and Ireland whose work will involve supporting members of the community suffering economically, socially or from ill health as a result of the outbreak. This may include, but not be limited to, elderly people, those on low incomes and people at risk of food insecurity.
Grants are unrestricted and can go towards food provision, emergency supplies, practical support, running costs, transport and other essentials.
To apply visit their website.
Support from Covid-19 Local Hardship Fund
If anyone in your household has seen a drop in their income due to Covid and this has affected your ability to afford essential items such as household supplies and food then you may qualify for some assistance from the Covid-19 Hardship fund. This fund can also help with replacing essential white good items such as washing machines & fridges. If you are self-isolating and do not have help from family, friends, neighbours or support in your community and need help with shopping or collection of medication, please call (01271) 388280, outlining your situation and the assistance required.
