Small grants are helping groups deliver support to their community

Post by Wirral Council News » Wed Dec 23, 2020 5:09 pm

Nearly 40 community groups in Wirral will be supporting families with food and essential items over Christmas and beyond after being successful in their bid for COVID-19 winter funding.

Community-based food and welfare support providers were invited to bid for grants of up to £10,000 to ensure food and essential supplies are available to those most in need over the winter months.

The programme was oversubscribed, but 38 groups were successful and have been awarded funding to a combined total of £255,570. These groups will have until 31 March 2021 to spend their grant. This fund is part of Wirral’s £1.2m Covid Winter Grant Scheme from the Department for Work and Pensions.

“This is another example of Wirral people helping each other out in really tough times. All the groups who were successful with their applications to this fund will be providing support with food and other essential items within their own communities, to people who are their friends and neighbours. Well done and thank you to everyone involved.”
