Emergency Community Fund

Tewkesbury Borough Council has launched a COVID-19 Emergency Community Fund to help communities as they respond to exceptional challenges over the coming months.

There are already some really amazing examples of community action springing up right across the borough, with great ideas about how local charities and organisations can help out during this unprecedented time.

Tewkesbury Borough's charitable organisations, and voluntary and community groups with charitable aims, can now apply for a grant of up to £1000  to deliver projects or services that meet the Tewkesbury Borough COVID-19 Community Fund criteria.

The following activities will be a priority for this grant programme:

  • Direct and immediate practical support for vulnerable groups
  • Volunteer capacity to organisations delivering support to the above groups
  • Providing the above groups with access to necessary resources
  • Initiatives to reduce isolation and vulnerability

Running costs for organisations will be supported, including staff costs, volunteer expenses and transport costs. Small capital costs are also eligible, providing the capital items are directly linked to supporting the above groups.
