Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprises (VCSE) in the East Riding are working together to respond to the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic. The East Riding VCSE Network has established a new fund and consultancy support to help voluntary sector organisations during this crisis.
This grant and support package aims to provide support and funding to enable the voluntary sector to thrive, now and into the future. It has been designed to reflect the essential needs of the voluntary and community organisations, with the opportunity to receive consultancy support from the East Riding VCSE Network.
Purpose of Fund:
Providing support and funding to enable the voluntary sector to thrive now and into the future.
A grant programme designed to reflect essential needs of a voluntary or community organisation, with the opportunity to receive consultancy support from the East Riding VCSE Network.
Supported by local grant makers, businesses and East Riding of Yorkshire Council, this Covid-19 fund has an allocation of £150,000 to support essential costs and overcome challenges during Covid-19.
In addition, each applicant will have the opportunity to request consultancy support to prepare for a stronger future.
Applicants can request between £500 and £5,000. We anticipate the need to be flexible and offer successful groups additional funding if identified during the requested consultancy support.
Applying organisations must be registered on Beecan (opens in a new tab)with an appropriate not-for profit governing structure focused on the needs of the East Riding community. This process will be supported HEY Smile Foundation (opens in a new tab)and alternative arrangements could be implemented if required.
