At Wales & West Utilities our job is to keep you safe and warm at home. Day to day we do that by looking after the pipes that keep the gas flowing. You rely on us to heat your homes, while we also power businesses and essential services like hospitals.
And we know that the Covid19 Coronavirus pandemic is challenging people like never before. So we’re launching our Safe and Warm fund – a £50,000 pot that community and parish councils, not for profit co-operatives or community interest companies, charities and community groups can apply to.
From food banks to energy efficiency, domestic abuse charities to community transport – we want to support those on the frontline – helping the most vulnerable stay safe and warm.
You can apply for between £500 and £5000, and in your application, we’ll want you to let us know how our funding can help extend your existing funding and support those most in need.
Applications will be assessed by a panel of representatives from Wales & West Utilities. The fund opens for applications at 8 am on 15 June 2020, and all applications must be made by 11:59 pm on 6 July 2020. We will let people know if their application has been successful by 18 July, and all being well organisations will receive funding within 10 working days after that.
For any enquiries please contact us on 02920 278558 or by emailing us here.
