Press Release (26) - DVSC Launches a third #COVID 19 Emergency Grant Round To Support the #COVID 19

Scroll down for Welsh

DVSC is delighted to launch its third emergency #Covid19 grant round to support recovery and community resilience as we emerge from Lockdown. £26,591 is available to support the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector in Denbighshire. This new fund has been enabled by Comic Relief from monies raised from the Big Night In.

Helen Wilkinson, DVSC’s Chief Executive commenting on the new grant round:

“It is great to be launching this new grant round. The previous two have been great successes and have helped the voluntary and social enterprise sector here in Denbighshire offer great service in such unprecedented and uncertain times. 15 groups and organisations have so far been funded and over £24,000 distributed. It has been inspirational to see the work being done and this will hopefully continue during this grant round. We have put together a promotional video for this funding opportunity so that we can promote far and wide”

The new grant round offers support to voluntary sector organisations and community groups. Its purpose is to enable those providing vital support to groups such as: people in isolation, the elderly, carers, people struggling to access food etc so that they can continue to receive support as the county emerges from Lockdown.

The grant is available for not-for-profit groups and organisations that are independent of government, private and public sector and registered charities. Applicants will be able to apply for up to £2,000.

Projects must meet one of three funding criteria outlined:

  • Maintain or increase activities that support the vulnerable during the #COVID19 pandemic

  • Ensure voluntary, community and social enterprise groups and organisations have the resources needed to deliver vital services for their communities e.g. volunteer expenses

  • Encourage stringent health and safety protocols for volunteer activities to safeguard volunteers, beneficiaries, and voluntary sector staff, volunteers and beneficiaries, e.g. the purchase of PPE, hand sanitiser

Examples of activities that could be supported:

  • Children survive and thrive - Actions to give children the best start in life and access to opportunities to achieve their potential

  • Gender justice - Actions to improve equality for women and girls

  • A safe place to be - Actions to help vulnerable people improve their circumstances and safety

  • Mental health matters - Actions to enable access to support and increase awareness…and lots more!

DVSC is operating a rapid grant decision-making process with applications considered on a rolling basis until funds are disbursed.
