Anglian Water - Positive Difference Fund

*** PLEASE NOTE - DUE TO DEMAND THIS FUND IS NOW CLOSED FOR APPLICATIONS - JULY 2020 ***

Anglian Water operates at the heart of the community and its employees live locally too, so they’re committed to making this region a great place to live and work.

The Coronavirus pandemic has shown that community has never been more important, and that’s why Anglian Water has created The Anglian Water Positive Difference Fund. It will provide grants to support projects which have a positive impact on the people and communities they serve, allowing them to provide help and connecting people with the practical and essential support they need.

The first part of the fund is open to constituted community organisations who are supporting vulnerable, isolated and older people at this time. It will provide community organisations with emergency funding to deal with emerging issues in the community, as a result of the continuing threat of coronavirus, and the need for self-isolation, and potential for further exacerbation of loneliness and isolation.

This will include; the need for self-isolation, financial hardship, potential for hunger, lack of shelter, further exacerbation of health issues, loneliness and isolation.

Grants between £1,000 and £5,000 will be considered (larger grants may be available for groups working in partnership, or in exceptional circumstances).

Cambridgeshire Community Foundation (CCF) is leading on this programme and is working with Community Foundations across the Anglian Water Region (please see map below showing CF partner areas).

This fund is open to voluntary and community organisations that are based in the area of benefit. You can use the postcode checker to ensure you meet this criteria here all groups applying must have clear charitable aims & objectives.
