Fund launch – Supporting the Clinically Vulnerable in North East Lincolnshire Grant Scheme

Deadline for applications – midnight 6th June 2021

The objective of the Clinically Vulnerable Grant Scheme is to provide support to those with specific medical conditions which have made them particularly vulnerable to being seriously ill if they contract Covid-19. Now that lockdown measures are easing North East Lincolnshire Council would like to offer funding to local voluntary and community groups for projects to help these residents and other vulnerable members of our community with the transition and better equip them if shielding / lockdown is required again at some point in the future.

Grant awards of up to £10,000 for projects that will help meet one or all of the three key outcomes detailed below:

  1. Feel better able to cope with any future restrictions on movement and socialising.
  2. Feel able to start to re-integrate into the community.
  3. Have the digital capacity and capability to help them access support and social opportunities for the future.

Through the following categories of support:

  1. Digital Inclusion
  2. Exercise and Wellbeing
  3. Socialising and Travel

Projects should be focussed on quick delivery of outcomes to ensure support during and immediately after the easing of lockdown restrictions, with a delivery time of up to 6 months. 

This funding is provided through the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government (MHCLG) and has been allocated primarily to support the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable, but awards will be made for projects that offer wider support for other vulnerable groups in the community.
