Charlton councillor offers advice for businesses and voluntary groups

Gary Parker

Charlton ward councillor Gary Parker has produced a briefing document for local businesses and voluntary groups looking for funding during the coronavirus crisis.

He says it is aimed at giving “local businesses and community organisations access to both Covid-19 related and non-Covid-19-related information on funding and support to help them survive the current crisis. I am concerned about the economic impact in the community during and even more so in the aftermath of the pandemic when many local businesses and community organisations may struggle to survive.”

Separately, charities and community groups based in Greenwich borough can apply for up to £10,000 in funding to help them through the coronavirus crisis. Greenwich Council and a charity linked to the local NHS, the Greenwich Charitable Trust, have each put in £75,000 to fund the grants, with the voluntary service organisation Metro Gavs in charge of distributing the funds. Details of how to apply are on the Metro Gavs website.
