Funding for community initiatives
Cheshire and Warrington COVID-19 Response Fund
Donations can now be made to the Cheshire and Warrington COVID-19 Response Fund, which is being organised by Cheshire Community Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation that raises funds to support hundreds of small charities and voluntary groups across the whole of Cheshire and Warrington.
The fund will prioritise funding to charitable projects across the county that are supporting people affected by the virus, helping to keep them safe and supported in their homes and reducing pressure on the NHS.
Funding could help towards providing activities that help vulnerable people self isolating, coordinating community response and supporting volunteers, and increasing capacity for organisations providing emergency support, such as food banks or benefits advice.
Many people and businesses will be struggling financially, but those whose would like to support the fund can donate now.
