Funding available to support community and voluntary groups

Warwick District Council is urging local voluntary and community groups to come forward and access the COVID-19 relief funding which is available to them.

Launched last month, the Community Emergency Response Fund (CERF) will award grants of up to £1000 (or more in exceptional circumstances), to organisations who have a role in supporting the Warwick District community and are experiencing short-term financial hardship, needing to adapt or increase their services or have had to cease operations due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although several successful applications have already been made, the Council is aware that many other local groups could be eligible for support.
