Suffolk Community Restart Fund Workshop

19th May 2021 @ 11:30 am 12:30 pm

This workshop will take place online via Zoom.

A one-hour workshop for groups / organisation to find out more about the Suffolk Community Restart Fund.

The Community Restart programme is an initiative by the Collaborative Commuities Board and Community Action Suffolk to help re-mobile the VCSE sector to re-open in a Covid safe way. As part of the initiative there is funding available to help organisations achieve this in-line with the Government’s recommendations from step 3 of the roadmap, currently due to take place from May 17th.

The Suffolk Community Restart Fund is for:

  • organisations / groups in the VCSE sector who have responsibility for running a community building / village hall
  • organisations / groups in the VCSE sector who make use of a community building / village hall as a venue to deliver their services.

The focus of the fund is to enable community building committees and organisers of clubs; groups; and schemes to overcome barriers to reopening or restarting their regular activities.

Grant funding must be used specifically to help resume activities in a Covid-safe way – this can include purchasing PPE; creating new signage; or introducing new cleaning regimes.

The workshop will be led by Jayne Vaughan, Governance and Community Buildings officer at Community Action Suffolk, who will explain the purpose of the fund in more detail, as well as the application process, and answer any questions you may have.
