Bromsgrove District Council are inviting the voluntary community sector (VCS) and statutory organisations to bid for a share of £20k covid recovery funding.

The funding, which has been given to the council by Public Health, is designed to be used to support community recovery from Covid-19 and to mitigate against further impact of the pandemic.

Funding will be allocated through a competitive grant application process and VCS groups or statutory organisations such as schools, councils, and NHS organisations, are invited to enter a bid.

The funding provides the opportunity for organisations to bid for grants to support a scheme, project or service they want to deliver which aims to mitigate and alleviate the impact of the pandemic. The criteria for the grant is broad but applications should meet the following requirements:

  • Helps to reduces inequality caused by impact of COVID-19;
  • Supports vulnerable groups who have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19; and
  • Meets a local need within the borough.

Bids up to £10k can be made for Bromsgrove or as a joint scheme across Bromsgrove and Redditch, but organisations are asked to read the guidance notes for application and request an application form by emailing” prior to entry.

Leader of Bromsgrove District Council, Cllr Karen May, said: “If you are part of a VCS or statutory organisation and have a proposal to help our communities get back on their feet and minimise the lasting effects of the pandemic, please get in touch. Our district has so many schools, parish councils, NHS facilities and VCS groups who are all able to access this funding and make a big difference to the recovery of our communities.”

The closing date for applications is Thursday 2nd September at 4pm. Applications can be posted to or hand delivered to Redditch Town Hall (Helen Broughton, Floor 3, Redditch Town Hall, Walter Stranz Square, Redditch, B98 8AH) or emailed to
