COVID funding

The Parish Council have been awarded a grant to support the parish through the COVID pandemic.

The funding is ideally to support projects that directly help vulnerable people affected by the effects of COVID-19, such as by providing access to food, toiletries, necessities, as well as projects to help vulnerable people in isolation. We could also look at projects that have already been set up and are incurring extra costs as a result of helping vulnerable people. More »

So we could be looking at any of the following:

  • Access to food, e.g. help with food shopping, food delivery etc.
  • Access to medicine, e.g. help with collecting and delivering prescriptions and medicines from supermarkets and pharmacies
  • Dog walking, e.g. to help with the cost of running dog walking schemes, such as phone calls
  • Social wellbeing, e.g. befriending / buddy schemes - friendly chat via phone
  • Emotional / mental health wellbeing
  • Physical wellbeing, e.g. help to stay mobile and active, advice about health
  • Transport, e.g. help for essential travel
  • Other projects / services not listed above that support vulnerable people impacted by COVID-19 may also be considered for funding.
