Haringey coronavirus (COVID-19) updates
Please note the grant scheme has now closed. This is an archived update.
The council recognises the enormous contribution made by the voluntary, community and faith sector to our communities; this contribution has been brought to light more than ever during the Covid-19 pandemic and the response of the sector during this time has been invaluable. We also appreciate the increased pressure that a range of community-based organisations are under during this time, responding to reduced income and increased need.
Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been delivering a package of support to community organisations. As part of this package of support, we are now launching the Community Organisations Support Grants programme. We want to encourage you to apply for the funding if your organisation is eligible and in need of it. The funding is for unavoidable running and core operational costs arising from Covid-19 and is not intended to pay for services, including services responding directly to the impacts of Covid-19.
The Community Organisations Support Grants are open to community organisations whose operations have been difficult to adapt to lockdown, including service delivery or income-generating activity, including:
- Charities and voluntary sector organisations
- Social enterprises (not in shared workspaces)
- Community organisations (which are not charities or voluntary sector organisations)
- Places of worship and faith groups
Eid Al-Adha begins this week on Thursday 30 July, continuing until Monday 3 August.
It’s extremely important that everyone continues to adhere to government guidance on how to stay safe whilst observing the festival, this includes regular hand-washing, maintaining social distancing and reducing the number of people inside places of worship.
Let’s help to keep our communities safe by following the latest public health advice for Eid here.
Our Silver Active summer programme is now live, providing our Hub and Cluster sheltered housing residents with weekly activity sessions to keep busy, boost morale and interact with new people.
Residents can enjoy Stretch and Strengthen fitness or Reggaetivity dance classes on Zoom, or a simple group chat and mini quiz over the telephone. All options allow residents who may be shielding to keep in touch with others and make new friends!
