Your Homes Newcastle, in partnership with Ideal Boilers, has launched a new £10,000 community fund to help local projects and organisations respond to the impact of Covid-19.
As we begin the third wave of lockdown, we know that there are many in need of a helping hand. Everyone’s circumstances are different, so we’ve developed this fund to be flexible towards the needs of the community.
You might want to apply for a grant for home-schooling materials like stationary, games and crafts to bring together family members of the same households. If you’re living in a sheltered block you might want to hire in a singer for residents or buy bingo equipment for some socially distanced entertainment.
There are some restrictions on what we can help fund, but please get in touch for a chat and we can talk through your ideas.
Your Homes Newcastle have already deployed over 100 staff to provide additional support to communities with some making daily welfare calls and supporting local foodbanks and pharmacies with deliveries. This funding allows for you to shape the support you receive and ask for something a little different.
Just text ‘YHN Community Spirit Fund’ with the name of your charity/group to 07971044463 and Jill Hayton from our engagement team will ring you back.
