Sanctuary Housing is offering funding to support projects that will make a difference to the lives of Shiregreen residents during the coronavirus outbreak.

Grants of up to £1,000 are available from Sanctuary’s Shiregreen Community Chest fund, to help charities, individuals and community groups deliver activities which tackle issues related to Covid-19.

Projects must benefit Shiregreen residents and have a community focus, and successful applications will fit one or more of Sanctuary’s priorities for the fund:

  • Building connections and reducing isolation
  • Increasing skills and employability
  • Growing neighbourhood pride and community safety
  • Helping residents better manage their money
  • Sustainable lifestyles and greener living

Melanie King, Sanctuary’s neighbourhood partnerships manager, said: “Our communities are at the heart of everything we do and the Shiregreen Community Chest is a wonderful opportunity for us to support projects that will make a real difference during the unprecedented crisis of Covid-19.

“We’re looking forward to hearing from groups and individuals who share those goals and can help us to achieve this.”
