Focus on Local Kirklees Funding

Emergency Funding for Organisations and Individuals During Covid19

During the current pandemic, there are a number of ways you can access local emergency funding to help you support people in your community, either as a concerned and pro-active individual, as a new or established group or as an established organisation.  We don’t know how long these funding opportunities will last, and so it’s a good idea to get your application in as soon as possible.  Some national funds have started to wind down or close, and we expect that NET Coronavirus Emergency Fund which is being administered by One Community in Kirklees, may close in the next few weeks.

All the information below is taken from the Council’s Community Response website.

If you need help with funding, whether it’s finding the right fund for your project or help with writing your application, please get in touch.
