Covid 19 Tamworth Voluntary Organisations Support Fund - Apply Now!

Wed 2 Sep 2020

There is no application deadline but all money needs to be committed by January 2021

Do you run a project/activity in Tamworth that has been affected by Covid 19 and needs a helping hand?

If the answer is yes, this fund may be right for your organisation.

What is the Fund?

The Covid 19 Tamworth Voluntary Organisation Support Fund will help to fund community activities or services to continue during the Coronavirus (Covid 19) crisis.  We are interested in applications for items that will help you to continue to function for the next six months, e.g. room hire, volunteer expenses, PPE, training.  This scheme covers organisations within the geographical area of Tamworth Borough Council.

If you would like to be sent the funding application and guidelines or need support filling in your application, please contact Clare Jolly on 07946 350232 or email her at clare.jolly@supportstaffordshire.org.uk

The guide provides details about the grants in terms of what Support Staffordshire can fund, who is eligible to apply, any restrictions and what you need to provide with your application form.  It gives additional information to that contained within the application form.  All applications must be made on the application form and a variety of supporting documentation is required.  This is for organisations that have not already received National Lottery Covid 19 funding.

This grant scheme is administered by Support Staffordshire who can answer any questions and give assistance and/or advice to potential applicants to ensure the best possible outcome. The grant panel is made up of a representative from Support Staffordshire (Tamworth), Tamworth Borough Council and Community Together CIC, ensuring local knowledge of the local area and its needs.

This fund is a one-off, so will not reappear.  Don’t miss out!
