Blackpool, Wyre & Fylde CVS are working in partnership with Wyre and Fylde Councils and the CCGs for Blackpool and Fylde & Wyre to help support the Voluntary, Community, Faith and Social Enterprise Sector (VCFSE) across the two areas by providing grants.
What we can fund:
The maximum we can award is £5,000 per organisation but we would like to encourage a wide range of bids from a minimum of £300 up to a small number to the £5,000 maximum.
We are keen to fund projects that:
– Meet the immediate need of Wyre, Fylde and Blackpool residents who are struggling as a result of COVID-19
– Provide advice and information to residents affected by COVID-19 to help them access longer term support they might need, such as benefits, debt
advice or employment support
– Provide emotional and mental health support
– Help address social isolation
– Demonstrate how significant numbers of residents most affected by COVID-19 will benefit from these funds and which geographical areas and issues are
being addressed
– Address digital exclusion
Applications will be evaluated on a rolling basis.
The application window for this round of funding will close at 5pm on Monday 1 st February 2021.
