Funding of up to £5,000 is available to provide additional capacity to voluntary and community groups supporting at risk groups, residents and projects in Colchester during the Winter period.
Not-for-profit organisations and public sector partnerships can apply to the One Colchester Resilience Fund to support people who may be experiencing social isolation, health inequalities, or low income and unemployment, particularly those living alone and younger people under the age of 35.
The fund aims to support people to stay safe, well, warm and connected, and could be used to respond to seasonal pressures, such as increased demand, or to tackle entrenched issues in the community that can affect resilience.
Projects exceeding £5,000 will be considered.
Applications can be submitted at any time until the 30th November 2021.
