Wales & West Utilities has put out a final call ahead of its upcoming deadline for charities and bodies across Bath to submit applications for its £50,000 community fund.
The gas pipeline and emergency service is looking to support charities and bodies affected by the coronavirus pandemic and has established the Safe and Warm Fund in response to the crisis to help communities affected by the outbreak with essential funding.
Wales & West Utilities has been working hard throughout the pandemic to make sure people are kept safe and warm in their homes and has opened the fund to help others do the same.
Wales & West Utilities Chief Executive, Graham Edwards, said: “The Safe and Warm Fund has been established to directly support organisations working in communities, targeting support at those who need it most.
“We’re encouraging organisations across the area – from food banks to energy efficiency organisations, domestic abuse charities to community transport.
“Put simply, we want to support those on the frontline and help the most vulnerable people in the community stay safe and warm.”
Organisations and charities can apply for funding between £500 and £5,000. The deadline is Monday 6th July 2020.
Applicants are encouraged to give details about how the funding will help extend its support to those most in need.
Graham continued: “One of the most optimistic elements of this pandemic has been seeing the way in which communities have pulled together to support one another and we are hoping that this money will go some way to extending that support.”
Applications will be assessed by a panel consisting of representatives from Wales & West Utilities.
