CWSAN and COSTA ( local rural support networks in Mid Ulster) have put together a small fund for those community groups working to assist local people who are in isolation as a result of Covid19. We are offering a small grant of max £150 for Safety Equipment and for Volunteers Fuel”. Please find attached a short application form.

This is a small grant and the overall budget is quite limited as we are also asking all those smaller village and rural groups to apply.  A full list of Community Response teams can be found on Mid Ulster District Councils site, please check and you should register with same.

This small grant is for Safety Equipment such as hand sanitiser, Personal Protective Equipment – gloves, facemasks, material etc and Volunteers fuel – up to a maximum of £150 and is designed for small local emergency support groups who are working right across all the local community.
