COMMUNITY and voluntary organisations can apply for a grant to support Rugby’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Rugby Borough Council (RBC) has invited borough organisations to apply for grants ranging from £250 to £750.

The grants aim to help charities, voluntary and community organisations deliver projects which support Rugby’s response to the pandemic through to recovery.

Applications are particularly encouraged from organisations keen to develop new ways of working and connecting with residents through digital technology, or launch projects to address specific issues which have arisen during the pandemic.

RBC’s communities and homes spokeswoman Coun Emma Crane said: “Community and voluntary organisations play a vital role in the borough and, like all of us, have faced many challenges during the pandemic.

“Our new grants aim to provide organisations with some additional help to overcome those challenges, developing projects which engage our communities during lockdown and ‘future-proof’ support services moving forward to recovery.

“We have limited funding but welcome all expressions of interest which can deliver real benefits to the borough’s residents.”

Visit for more information or to submit an expression of interest in a grant – which must be submitted by 5pm on Friday November 6.
