Voluntary organisations are eligible to apply for either £1,500, or up to £5,000 through Bolton’s Fund. This is to recruit and support volunteer Community Champions who will be able to have informed conversations about Covid-19 within their local communities. The size of the grant will be determined by the number of Champions recruited and the levels of engagement proposed.
Applications are particularly encouraged from organisations engaging with individuals from the following under-represented groups, however applications are welcome from any group which meets the criteria of the programme:
Financially disadvantaged communities.
People from Pakistani, Indian, African, Caribbean and Eastern European communities.
Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.
People with physical and learning disabilities.
Young people and families.
Digitally excluded communities.
Any constituted not for profit group in Bolton is eligible. Further information can be found on Bolton CVS website: https://www.boltoncvs.org.uk
