Warwick Town Council have launched an emergency charity funding scheme as a result of the Coronvairus pandemic which is having a significant impact on Warwick charities.
We believe that people living with mental and/or physical disabilities, a long-term illness or those less fortunate should have the same choices, quality of life opportunities and aspirations as others.
To help us achieve this we have launched a COVID-19 Grant Scheme to support Charities who, through their day to day operations, strive to bring about transformational change to enhance the quality of the lives of people in need throughout Warwick (CV34). This funding will only be open until the end of the current Civic Year; May 2021.
The Fund contributes to the Council’s objectives of involving community representatives in identifying local needs, supporting the role of Councillors, and the representative role of the Town Council.
Grant applications up to £3,000 are taken to the upcoming Community & Cultural or Economic and Tourism Committee meeting for consideration. The committee may approve applications up to £3,000. Grants for more than £3,000, up to £5,000, must pass through committee approval and then go forward to the following Full Town Council meeting for final decision.
COVID-19 Grant Scheme: To apply for a Charity Grant, please download the Application Form which is available as a PDF or Word Document and send the completed form to the address given at the bottom of the document by the appropriate closing date.
The closing date for applications is 10 days prior to the Committee meeting. Applications must be countersigned by the supporting Town Councillor (Section 6). The supporting Town Councillor must also complete the funding application form which can be downloaded as a PDF or Word Document and submitted at the time of submitting the completed application form.
Completed forms and any supplementary sheets should be sent to the Town Clerk: firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively, forms can be delivered to: Town Clerk, Warwick Town Council, Court House, Jury Street, Warwick, CV34 4EW.
