A new Calderdale Cost of Living Fund for VCSE organisations

Posted on

There is £226,950 available for local community and voluntary groups based in Calderdale, with contributions from

  • Calderdale Council
  • West Yorkshire Combined Authority via the Mayor’s Cost of Living Emergency Fund
  • Community Foundation for Calderdale.

This funding is designed to help local voluntary and community groups continue to support people in need throughout Winter as the demand for services rises.

There are 3 strands to the funding – emergency support, prevention (warm & welcoming spaces) and building resilience. These strands have been brought together in to one fund to try and reduce the amount of time local groups spend on writing applications.

You’ll find all the details in the guidance but here is an ‘at a glance’ table showing the key elements of the Calderdale Cost of Living Fund:

Please note, the majority of funds need to be spent by end March 2023 as the focus for the fund is supporting Calderdale residents through the Winter.

You can apply for one, two or all three strands of funding if your organisation is eligible.

Click below to apply online before the closing date for applications on Friday 9th December 10am.

These funds may be of interest particularly organisations who offer warm and welcoming spaces.
