Changes to service delivery and increased demand have all led to greater strain on the sector.  To maintain and increase capacity to support vulnerable groups whilst also reducing impact on statutory services £240k of the Test and Trace grant received by the Council is allocated through this grant programme to support VCS capacity to respond to outbreak management, prevention and recovery.


The maximum grant available is £20,000, though smaller bids are also welcome.
