The following electoral divisions are included:

  1. Braunstone

A total of £100,000 is being made available for a limited period of time (until 24th July 2020), for organisations operating in the affected electoral divisions only.

The maximum amount available to any one organisation will be £2,000 and the minimum amount is £500.

Council leader, Nick Rushton, said: "This is the biggest health crisis in living memory. But, we will come through this – and the support provided by communities plays a huge part in getting through this difficult time.

"Voluntary groups play a fundamental role in supporting people - and I'd encourage them to contact their local county councillor to find out how they can access this funding."

The deadline for submissions is Friday, 24 July.
