The fund will be targeted towards three specific areas: provision of food and essentials, mental health support and domestic abuse support.
Cllr Ian Albert, NHDC’s executive member for finance and IT said: “We want to be able to help groups who might be struggling to keep services going, so that when all this is over, we still have the thriving voluntary and community sector we have today.
“The fund operates on a rolling process, so there is no deadline to apply, applications can be submitted at any time.”
