The Supporting Communities Fund 2020

The Supporting Communities Fund 2020 is now closed. The fund will re-open for applications in April 2021.

Applications for the Supporting Communities Fund must be able to demonstrate how they will help the council support the wellbeing of residents, improve lives and enhance access to support services for those who are vulnerable.

In 2020, the council is aiming to achieve three outcomes using this fund:

1. Supporting positive mental health in residents, in particular young people

2. Reducing social isolation in residents, in particular older people

3. Supporting the recovery of residents from the coronavirus pandemic
