Charities are invited to apply for funds before March 3


The Essex Fund is now open for applications. Essex based charities are encouraged to apply now for financial support from the ‘Essex Fund’ to keep their services and projects running.

Organisations and projects that help unpaid carers, improve the environment or engage people in environmental projects, provide a community resource or activities that help young people, including arts, culture and heritage projects, are all eligible for consideration.

The deadline to make applications is Friday 3 March, 5pm and organisations across Essex are being encouraged to contact Essex Community Foundation (ECF) to apply.

Andy Payne Worpole, Head of Programmes at ECF, said:

“We are pleased to manage the Essex Fund and work with the decision-making panel at the council to get funding to where it is needed most. The panel are particularly interested in supporting smaller voluntary organisations and projects that are working in areas of deprivation where there is a lack of facilities.”

To apply, you can find out more by contacting the ECF Grants Team on 01245 355947 or by emailing
