Rochford District Council will be offering £10,000 of funding to local voluntary sector groups which benefit our community.
Each year the Council operates a Voluntary Sector Grant scheme which aims to support local voluntary and community organisations that deliver services and/or projects in the Rochford District.
Rochford District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Community, Cllr Mike Webb, said: “The pandemic has showed us just how incredibly strong the network of community and voluntary sector groups are in the Rochford District. We are very proud of all the work achieved and that we can continue to offer support with their vital work to our residents through the continuation of funding this year”.
We ask that funding applications relate to the current three priorities of our local Health & Wellbeing Board, to reduce levels of overweight and obesity, improve mental health and wellbeing and to support people to lead independent lives, but we also want to see applications that relate to our communities resilience as we come out of the pandemics critical stages. This is in line with our current strategy refresh being coproduced by members of the board”.
It’s easy to apply, just visit https://www.rochford.gov.uk/vog and follow the guidance.
