Financial Assistance Scheme continues

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.

Covid-19 Financial Assistance Scheme Launched

Ellingham Community Trust have launched a Financial Assistance Scheme. Permanent residents can apply for £500. The application form and further information is available here.

Ellingham Community Trust will consider the provision of possible financial assistance for permanent residents of the parish suffering demonstrable hardship through loss of income from the current Covid-19 situation. The grant provides an initial payment of £500, with the possibility of a further payment of £500 depending upon circumstances. Application will be through the completion of a form, and assessed by Trustees. All applications will be dealt with confidentially and on an individual basis.

Extra Solid Fuel Available

Did you apply for solid fuel in the 2019 scheme? If so, you can buy some extra heat logs.

Ellingham Community Trust has a small number of spare heat log pallets this year. If you would like to purchase half a pallet of heat logs at £100 (cost price to Ellingham Community Trust) please email before 16th Feb.

If Ellingham Community Trust receives more requests than half pallets available, names will be drawn from a hat.
