The Council, working with John Storer Charnwood, has launched Charnwood Community Action – a campaign to help support, advise and guide and co-ordinate groups and people who are volunteering to help others in the borough during the coronavirus pandemic.
We know there will be many people in our communities who need help and support during these times.
We recognise the value and contribution of individuals, voluntary sector organisations and other community-led projects and the benefits they provide to the residents of Charnwood.
Through our Charnwood grant schemes we can provide a range of grants to help these organisations, groups and individuals access the funding support they need.
