Voluntary and Community sector groups can apply for a grant to help towards the cost of running a community event to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Funding is from the Contain Outbreak Management Fund (COMF).

 

The funding should be used to support the running of Jubilee Community events in a Covid safe way. You will need to follow the latest official guidance.
If you are holding a community lunch or street party you could use the grant to hold it outdoors. It could also be used to pay for more cleaning and sanitation.
Events should include an element of health and wellbeing. This could be a physical activity or you could provide ways to overcome social isolation and loneliness or mental health issues. The event may also give a wider more general health promotion message.
Another idea is to provide advice at the event to help people with Covid recovery. This could be recovering from the illness or the their personal situation due to the pandemic, for example, unemployment or debt.

Applications open: Monday 7 March 2022

Applications close: 5pm Friday 25 March 2022

You will be notified if your application has been successful by 1 April 2022.

You must have spent the grant by Thursday 30 June 2022.

The funding is open to the Voluntary and Community Sector. This includes registered charities, schools and other educational institutions, providers of leisure and sporting facilities. It is open to statutory organisations such as councils and NHS organisations.

Your organisation needs to have a formal constitution if it is not a registered charity or company, statutory body or a school or other educational institution.

Yes. Groups or organisations need to have a bank account in the name of that group or organisation and, unless they are a statutory organisation, registered charity or company, have two or more signatories. This is standard good practice to help avoid fraud. The signatories should not be related to each other, and at least one should be a senior committee member/trustee such as Chair or Treasurer.

Organisations may apply for up to £500. On the application form you will be asked for a breakdown of how the funding will be used. You will need to provide a list of items and their costs.

The total grant fund is £5,000.

Please complete the grant application form by clicking on the button at the bottom of this webpage.

The person completing and submitting the form must have the authority to apply on behalf of the organisation.  

Your application will be reviewed by Wyre Forest District Council officers. We are aiming to let you know the outcome by Friday 1 April.

If you are successful and receive funding, you will be required to provide a brief report after your event.
