Coronavirus Emergency Community Fund
In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, Leigh-on-Sea Town Council have been working on practical solutions on ways they can support the community during these uncertain times.
A new scheme is being officially launched today – Leigh-on-Sea Town Council’s Coronavirus Emergency Community Fund. £10,000 has currently been set aside for the fund, from an existing volunteer programme but Council will consider further funding in due course if necessary.
External not-for-profits groups/organisations along with charities, are welcome to apply for grants from £250 up to £1000, to directly help support residents within Leigh. Additional applications can also be made again where proof of expenditure is provided.
Applications cannot be considered from political parties, commercial organisations or for projects that benefit individuals, private businesses, projects that fall outside the Town Council remit, or those that improve private land or property.
Grants will be reviewed within one week of being received by a panel of Councillors.
Full details of the application criteria and how to apply can be found on our website at http://www.leighonseatowncouncil.gov.uk/emergency-community-fund
