Funding available for organisations and community groups to establish welcoming places across the East Riding

Welcoming places are being established across the East Riding to provide somewhere warm for residents to visit during the colder months.

As part of East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Help for Households campaign, which has been established to support residents and businesses through the current cost of living crisis, organisations and community groups will be able to apply for grants to open their venues as welcoming places while East Riding libraries will be opening their doors to people to offer a warm and welcoming place.

As part of the Do it for East Yorkshire community grant, organisations and community groups, including those who have previously received funding from the scheme, can now apply for grants between £1,500 and £5,000 specifically to open their venues on a regular basis to provide welcoming places.

These venues can include village halls, community centres and food banks but they must provide activities and/or refreshments such as a lunch club or exercise group in order to be eligible to apply for the grant to go towards energy costs of staying open.
