New cost of living grant offers financial support to voluntary and community groups  

Warwickshire County Council has launched a grant fund worth £180,000 that will support voluntary and community groups across the county to establish projects that address cost of living pressures.  

Warwickshire’s community organisations and groups are at the heart of our county and do exceptional work to support Warwickshire residents. But cost-of-living pressures are placing a significant and growing strain on Warwickshire’s residents, communities and businesses. The Cost of Living Grant has been established to enable voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations and town and parish councils to step forward to establish projects that counteract and address some of these pressures.  

Groups are invited to apply for funding of up to £1,000 to support projects or initiatives that focus on one or more of the following criteria:   

  • Food and other household essentials   
  • Improving community assets and their sustainability   
  • Improving access to services   
  • Improving financial capability   
  • Improving mental wellbeing   
  • Tackling social inequalities   

Information on eligibility and support for making an application can be found on 

 To ensure the funding can be allocated as quickly as possible the deadline for applications is 5pm on 18th December 2022. Applications will then be evaluated, and successful bids will be allocated funds from 9th of January.
