A scheme was launched during the first lockdown to help aid community groups with funding during the pandemic. Now that we are on the road to recovery, we have adapted the grant scheme to help support out regular local hirers at Leigh Community Centre.
Leigh-on-Sea Town Council’s COVID Community Recovery Award has been created to help hirers of the centre who provide a valuable service for our young and elderly residents, for health and well-being or the disabled (whether fully or in part) and who were not eligible for the Government Grants and may struggle to recover as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The benefit being commensurate with the value of the award.
The Award will take the form of free hire of facilities at Leigh Community Centre as detailed in the policy and application.
The full policy details can be found below, click here to download an application form. Please send completed application forms to firstname.lastname@example.org
