A NEW cost-of-living fund has been launched in the district.
Community organisations geared at helping households suffering financial hardship are invited to make an application to the new funding scheme set up by Warwick District Council. Grants of up to £3,000 are available.
The new funding is targeted at not-for profit groups and charities to set up or expand schemes that could benefit individuals or families who may be struggling.
Projects that would be considered for funding include the provision of school holiday activities and meals out of term time for families and children, supporting mental health and wellbeing, offering financial advice and information, or supplying food and other household essentials to those in need.
WDC’s communities spokesperson Coun Jim Sinnott said: “We are very aware of the impact that the cost-of-living crisis is having on the most vulnerable groups in our community. These grants will be allocated to allow small, grass roots organisations to boost their current offering or kick start a new project that could make a real difference to people’s lives.”
