Ellingham Community Trust’s Financial Assistance Scheme continues to help permanent residents of the parish. Click here for the application form.
Trustees have received numerous applications for the Financial Assistance Scheme, here is just one of the responses from a successful applicant.
Please pass on my thanks & appreciation to the Trustees for the recent grant issued to me. I have decided to restart my business & begin working again for the time being (ie we don’t get stopped again), however, the past 6 weeks with no income has left me with a steep hill to climb to get out of debt. Your grant has helped stop the decline and given me a tremendous boost towards overcoming that.
