Emergency relief grants

Community Hub Emergency Relief Grants are designed to support voluntary and community organisations tackling the economic impacts of COVID-19 on Cherwell residents.

Grants of up to £5,000 are available to support programmes of work that will relieve hardship and reduce food insecurity.  Proposals must satisfy one or both of the funding priorities:

  • meet the immediate needs of a significant number of residents who are struggling to afford food and, or essentials.
  • provide advice and information to a significant number of economically disadvantaged residents, to help them access longer term support they might need, such as benefits

Any project that is supported needs to be inclusive and to promote community cohesion. Partnership working is encouraged.

The grant fund is limited.  Applications will be invited and assessed on a rolling basis until 31 March 2021 or the full fund has been awarded, whichever is soonest.
