In April, Anglian Water launched plans to establish a new £1 million community support fund to provide a cash boost for local communities to help fight the impacts of Coronavirus.
The money will help local charitable organisations deal with emerging issues in the community as a result of the continuing threat of coronavirus. Organisations like food banks, outreach programmes and those helping the most vulnerable can ask for support from the Positive Difference Fund via the Community Foundations to help those shielding or suffering from financial hardship, homelessness, loneliness and isolation.
To be eligible for funding, your project must support those most at risk from Coronavirus (including those with pre-existing medical conditions and older people over 60) or those in vulnerable circumstances and help to:
- Support their ongoing needs, ensuring their health and mental well-being is maintained,
- Reduce isolation and vulnerability during any isolation period that may arise as a result of the threat of coronavirus,
- Help to make sure people remain safely connected with the outside world during this time.
