Nottinghamshire Community Fund

Community fund

Voluntary groups, charities and faith groups are doing an amazing job supporting Nottinghamshire residents through this crisis. To help with their running costs, we’ve created a new £1m community fund.

You can apply now for a grant of up to £10,000 to deliver projects or services that meet the Nottinghamshire COVID-19 Community Fund criteria.

Thank you to these brilliant groups for all your work so far ❤️

Free school meals voucher scheme

Fresh fruit

A new voucher scheme has been launched for children who are entitled to free school meals. Parents will be able to get shopping vouchers worth £15 each week to spend at supermarkets while schools are closed to most pupils. Your child’s school should offer either a meal or a food voucher. This scheme does not include the universal infant free school meals entitlement. 

To find out more, contact your school directly or visit the following links.
