Current grant recipients

We absolutely recognise that in these current, very challenging circumstances, your organisation may well be reviewing the services and support you currently offer to residents to provide the advice, help and support they will need over the coming months. For current grant recipients, we understand that Covid-19 has very likely had an impact on your council supported projects and would encourage you to keep in regular contact with the community enablement team on grants@southandvale.gov.uk to discuss extending the time in which you have to start/complete your project during this period.
