Could Your Church Building Be A Warm Space?

These grants being made by Eastbourne and Lewes District Council. They are for voluntary and community groups. A summary is found below and more information can be found here.

They have set up this grants programme to help provide support to local people struggling with the cost-of-living crisis.

The deadline for this round is midnight on 31st October 2022, as we recognise that some projects will need support in time for winter. Depending on demand, the fund will then re-open shortly after.

Housing poverty e.g. housing advice initiatives
Fuel poverty e.g. funding for ‘Warm Space’ initiatives
Financial poverty e.g. debt advice and money management initiatives
