Covid 2021 New Emergency Fund

Organisations within our area of benefit are invited to apply for small grants of a maximum of £2,000 to support vulnerable individuals and families swiftly and effectively during the current lockdown. We expect applications to be used for food, clothing, utility bills and materials for home schooling or any other urgent need intensified by the pandemic.

All recipients of support from the fund would need to be living in the Trust’s Area of Benefit (see website page) and receipts for any purchases provided to us within three months of the grant provision.

To apply for the fund, please send an email to Joanna@hwct.co.uk with the following information:

  • How much money would you require within the upper limit designated?
  • How would the grant be used and administered?
  • Who and approximately how many people would it assist?
  • Details of how the distribution and expenditure would be monitored and reported back to the Trust.

Applications will be considered on an ongoing basis until the end of March 2021. If you have any queries regarding an application, please contact the Trust’s Grants Officer: joanna@hwct.co.uk
