Funding for organisations involved with Covid-19 response

South Covid-19 response councillor grants

The Councillor COVID Grant Scheme closed 31 October 2021. We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who have helped to provide this vital emergency support to residents in need.

The Councillor COVID Grant Scheme was launched in March 2020 offering every district councillor a budget of £2,000 to award to community and voluntary groups that were responding to the pandemic.

The scheme has funded some incredible projects which have provided help for self-isolating and vulnerable residents, counselling and mental health support, establishing covid support groups, support to care homes and resources for remote working.

There are now more schemes in place to support businesses, individuals and community groups.  Please contact who can signpost you to relevant grants schemes and/or income generation ideas such as joining the SO Charitable Lottery. For individuals and families, please contact for advice.

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 to discuss extending the time in which you have to start/complete your project during this period.
