Active Derbyshire, Active Notts, Funding, News

The main priority of this Cost of Living fund is to support low-income households and individuals. Community organisations can apply for funding to pay for costs of:

  • delivering
  • expanding or
  • adapting your existing critical service(s)

A wide range of community, not for profit organisations can apply,

To apply your organisation must already run critical services around at least one of the following:

  • Food and emergency supplies – like food and baby banks or the provision of hot meals, clothes or toiletries
  • Emergency shelter – like night shelters or other accommodation for people experiencing homelessness
  • Safe spaces – like domestic abuse services and youth services
  • Warmth – like warm rooms and spaces
  • Financial and housing advice – like giving people advice because of the increased cost of living.

Your organisation must also be facing both:

  • Increased demand for these critical services
  • Increased costs of delivering these critical services

Grants are between £10,000 and £75,000 and the closing date for applications is 16th October 2023 at 12 noon.
