Aims/priorities: We recognise community action is taking place across the Borough and we want to encourage and support this action. We are refocusing the Community Response Fund and introducing new priorities with an ‘Equalities Focus’ -available for Rochdale Borough groups.
We want to connect local community action and help to co-ordinate efforts in response to the needs of residents. We want to fund good neighbour, mutual aid and social action projects delivered by our community, voluntary, faith and social enterprise sector of Rochdale borough, to directly support people affected by COVID19.
We are particularly interested in funding work that helps, connects or supports groups of people who are experiencing inequalities caused or worsened by the pandemic.
Early emerging evidence has shown that some groups are more affected than others and we will prioritise applications that support one or more of these groups.
- Older people
- Black Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) groups
- People who live in low-income areas or vulnerable settings
- The impact of other ‘co-morbidities’ (other underlying diseases
