What funding is available?
Covid-19 Support Fund
We’re all in the fight against Coronavirus together, and brilliant work is happening right across Staffordshire to help people stay safe and well.
A huge, co-ordinated effort across community and voluntary groups across our county is making a huge difference. Thousands of people are helping those vulnerable and self-isolating to be able to stay at home and be safe and other groups are helping to combat loneliness and mental health, to name just a few.
Each County Councillor now has £2,500 to support community groups. No match funding is needed.
If you are a group of local people who want to come together to help your community, or an existing group that needs help due to the impact of Coronavirus, you can apply online.
Whilst the county council cannot do or fund everything it once did or would like to do, there is some funding available from the county council or other organisations in Staffordshire to support priority areas.
Some of them are ‘match-funding’, which means that they will match the money raised by the community or from other sources. Crowdfund Staffordshire is an online platform that can help you harness the power of the crowd and reach thousands of people interested in supporting good causes. It’s easy to set up your project on Crowdfund Staffordshire.
Did you know that 75% of people in Staffordshire regularly donate to good causes? It’s well worth getting started on Crowdfund Staffordshire to unlock the power of the crowd and make your ideas a reality. If you’re fundraising to do a project to help vulnerable children and families, you could get up to £5,000 to help.
