Extra Funding for Derbyshire Community Groups

Posted: Mon, 21 Jun 2021 15:57 by Clerk

Derbyshire County Council have allocated an extra £50,000 to groups in Derbyshire which are supporting local communities during the coronavirus pandemic.

They are making the money available to local community groups via the Public Health COVID-19 fund which was set up in June 2020.

From helping a Chesterfield cancer support group to hold online sessions and enabling a Ripley running group to lead COVID-secure runs, a total of 34 community groups are set to benefit from the latest round of grants which were agreed by the Cabinet Member for Health and Communities Councillor Carol Hart.

Councillor Hart said:

"The response to the pandemic has seen many organisations across Derbyshire working tirelessly to ensure the basic needs of the most vulnerable residents are met.

"The COVID-19 fund was set up to ensure that community and voluntary organisations had enough resource to carry on with their vital work."

So far, £185,657 has been awarded to a diverse range of Derbyshire organisations including parents' associations, ethnic minority groups, older people's charities and churches.

Councillor Hart added:

"This additional funding will enable more groups to carry out work within their local communities.

"We've already seen some amazing work being carried out including food parcels for vulnerable people, a community café being set up and support for students."

The Public Health COVID-19 Fund was set up to support voluntary and community sector organisations to help manage and reduce the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on local communities. It also aims to help improve the health and wellbeing of local people.

Funding of up to a maximum value of £2,000 is available for constituted groups and £250 for non-constituted groups.

Applications must be linked to an existing Public Health programme, for example to support mental health and emotional wellbeing or to tackle social isolation. » Less
