Community response network fund

Mansfield Community Response Network Fund

Voluntary groups and charities in Mansfield can apply for a grant of up to £2000 to deliver projects / services that meet the Council's Community Response Network Fund criteria.

As a priority, we wish to support local charities and community organisations that are delivering essential services to vulnerable Mansfield residents impacted by COVID-19.

We are especially interested in:

  • Projects that directly help vulnerable people affected by the effects of COVID-19, such as by providing access to food, toiletries, necessities, as well as projects to help people in isolation. 
  • Projects that are already set up and helping vulnerable people now.

Applications are welcome to help cover the running (revenue) costs as a result of responding to COVID-19 (e.g. the costs of recruiting, training and supporting volunteers, costs such as telephone calls, rent, gas and electricity or other costs relating to a new site or community hub where people can more easily access community support and services).

Help towards the cost of some capital items may also be considered.

To be eligible to apply, local charities and community organisations must be set up as an organisation type in line with our current criteria for funding (which are listed on the application form).
