Worthing Community Chest Covid-19 Crisis Funding
Worthing Community Chest are offering an emergency funding opportunity to anyone who is setting up small, ad hoc, neighbourhood projects in response to the coronavirus. In particular, any group considering schemes to reach isolated people, deliver food or medicines, run additional food banks or supplies, provide meals for school children etc. We are offering grants of up to £250 that are designed to be as flexible, quick and easy as possible.
They are currently accepting initial email applications. Please include your name, and some of the names of the people you are working with, a contact number, a brief description of what you are doing (or hoping to do), and what your estimated costs are. Please note that we understand neighbourhood support groups, (also called mutual aid groups), are more likely to be supplying food, toiletries and medicines as and when requested.
The grants will be given in advance which means you will have them at your disposal as soon as possible. You are responsible for sending us all of your receipts or proof of payments.
In order to tell the story of how Worthing’s communities and neighbourhoods stepped up to cope in crisis, they will also be asking you to feed back to us a loose idea of how many people you were able to support. Where appropriate, compelling anecdotes, photos and videos are great, it’s so much better to hear individual experiences.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to apply.
