Grants Available for Organisations Running Warm Spaces in BaNES

Is your charitable organisation or community group running a Warm Space in BaNES, or in the process of registering as a Warm Space? Help is now at hand to support you and your service, as applications are now open for the council’s Community Contribution Fund.

This fund offers £250 grants to support the costs involved in offering a Warm Space, such as energy costs, Wi-Fi, food and drinks, or activities that are taking place in the space.

This fund exists thanks to the generosity of residents since it was established in 2021, offering residents the opportunity to directly support local groups tackling inequality in the area.

This grant will help organisations to deliver the services desperately needed by those at the sharp end of the cost-of-living crisis. Councillor Richard Samuel, deputy leader and cabinet member for Resources, thanks all those residents who have donated to the fund.

To be eligible for funding, organisations must have registered their Warm Space on the council’s directory and agreed to the Warm Spaces Charter. Applications will be considered until March 2023 - with an average response time of 2 weeks - or until all the funds have been distributed.

Residents wishing to donate to the Community Contribution Fund can do so on the council website.

A list of all the Warm Spaces in B&NES can be found on the website.
