At an emergency meeting of our board of Trustees last night, it was decided that the grant making of B&D Renew will continue.
In response to the current situation, the board wants to support members of the community who have been spurred into action by the crisis, particularly those who are engaging with their community for the first time.
To this end, we will be considering applications for small grants to support ideas which are responding to the new needs of communities. We would still like our funding relationship to be personal, so would only be able to fund ideas which Cameron can support remotely.
If you wish to apply, please email us firstname.lastname@example.org or call Cameron on 07756 227 491. If you have the capacity to do video chats, we would like to use these as well.
The board will make regular decisions and we will get the money to you as soon as a decision is made.
Due to the ongoing situation regarding the coronavirus, we have made the difficult decision to suspend all face-to-face meetings for the foreseeable future.
This means that, unless ideas can be developed and supported using video or phone calls, we will not be able to give out funding.
However, this does not mean we have stopped working. We are currently exploring ways that we can help support the community spirit which has sprung up across the borough.
If you have any ideas for us, which we can share with our partners and funders, please let us know via our usual contact methods. We need to hear from the community if we are to figure out how our resources can be best used.
We will continue to update this page as we have more information.
Please make sure you stay informed about the latest advice by looking on the NHS website.
