Local Authority Funding update from Halton Borough Council September 2020

Thanks to our collegues from the External Funding Team at Halton Borough Council for information on the following funding:


Deadline:  There will be 2 funding rounds between now & noon on the 30th November 2020. The first closing date will be noon on the 11th September 2020. To be considered in Round 2, applications need to be submitted by noon on Monday 30th November 2020.

Details:  Grants of up to £20,000 are available for projects supporting Armed Forces communities to become less isolated and engage more in their local area and the needs that have arisen as a result of Covid-19. To be eligible to apply, the applicant organisation must be: An established registered charity or CIC with substantial recent experience of supporting Armed Forces communities; An Armed Forces unit or base; A local authority; or A school. The funding is being made available through the Armed Forces Covenant Fund’s Force for Change programme. The Trust will fund a wide range of projects under this programme. However, applicants must be able to show that their project fits under one of these two main themes.

  • Empowering Armed Forces communities to become more engaged in their local area.
  • Providing opportunities for isolated members of the Armed Forces community to take part in activities that improve general wellbeing.

This year, in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Trust will be particularly welcoming applications for projects that help Armed Forces communities move to the ‘new normal’ while continuing to support local needs and reduce isolation. There will be a particular focus on ensuring volunteers can carry out local projects.

How to apply:


Deadline: Applications will be accepted between the 15th September and the 21st October 2020.

Details: Local Authorities, Police Forces, Fire and Rescue Services, UK-based registered charities, universities, not-for-profit social enterprises and community interest companies will soon be able to apply for funding for local road safety pilots and trials. The Road Safety Trust has announced a new £300,000 funding stream to encourage applications that respond to changing road use and emerging road safety issues as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Through the Trust’s Small Grants Plus Programme 2020 funding of between £20,000 and £50,000 over a maximum of two years will be made available for projects which are either a pilot, trial or evaluation of a practical road safety intervention. All projects should have other sources of funding, either cash or in-kind.
