Apply now for grant funding to support your community

By Press Release May 29, 2024

Projects making a difference in their community could be eligible for a funding boost.

The Isle of Wight Council on Tuesday launched its latest round of community grants and is inviting applications from new or existing schemes helping people in financial hardship due to the cost-of-living crisis.

The scheme is there for a wide range of low-income households in need including families with children, older age people, unpaid carers and those living with a disability. All may be facing acute challenges.

The funds could be used for projects based around food, energy efficient white goods, small kitchen appliances, energy saving items like lightbulbs, warm packs and draft excluders and weather appropriate clothing and wider essentials.

The council would welcome applications from community and voluntary groups, including community pantries, as well as education provisions, town, parish and community councils.

The deadline for applications is Monday, June 3. Further grant schemes are planned for the end of June, July and August.
