Cash Grants Available to Assist in Covid-19 Response

Hunstanton Town Council recognises that the COVID-19 pandemic will give rise to additional pressures on the voluntary sector to support the most vulnerable in our communities.

In order to enable smaller voluntary sector groups to mobilise capacity and capability to assist in the response, the Council are now providing cash grants to registered charities, as well as some local community and volunteer groups within Hunstanton.

Who can apply

  • Registered charities
  • Constituted community and voluntary groups
  • Non-constituted 'grassroots' groups of local volunteers
  • Local businesses wishing to deliver charitable aid and support

What the grant can be used for

  • to provide relief and support to people in Hunstanton, who are at risk of vulnerability and hardship because of the COVID-19 crisis, or
  • you already provide support and these services are stretched due to the outbreak

Examples include, but are not limited to:

  • delivering food and essential supplies
  • providing advice and support about physical and mental health
  • providing advice and support about employment, and welfare benefits
  • support networks and services for the elderly or isolated
  • running costs for providing this support, including volunteer expenses, staffing costs, & transport
