Reducing the impact of COVID Grant 2021-23

Building resilience in ethnically diverse communities

The COVID 19 pandemic has brought health inequalities into focus and one part of the population that has been particularly affected is Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.   

The Reducing the impact of COVID grant 2021-23 is aimed at community and voluntary organisations to support Council’s strategic priorities: 

  • We want Warwickshire to have a thriving economy and places that have the right jobs, skills, education and infrastructure. +
  • We want to be a County where all people can live their best lives; where communities and individuals are supported to live safely, healthily, happily and independently. 
  • We want to be a County with a sustainable future which means adapting to and mitigating climate change and meeting net zero commitments. 

Round 2 is now open and you can get more information on the COVID grant page.

We also recommend that you also sign up to the Warwickshire Community and Voluntary Action newsletters to receive updates on this fund and other opportunities
