**APPLICATIONS STILL BEING ACCEPTED**
Kirklees Council’s Local Welfare Provision provided Third Sector Leaders Kirklees with a grant of £16,000 during the first lockdown to use for emergency food supplies at the weekends when they are closed.
They have now provided us with another £16,000 that can be accessed by groups supporting people to reduce financial hardship and building financial resilience.
Funds can be used by community groups in Kirklees for:
- Supporting people in financial hardship
- Providing food & essential supplies
- Set up costs & membership of food share schemes (e.g. Fare Share)
- Building financial resilience
The application process is very simple and grants can be approved and given very quickly.
