Community emergency plan funding

Your community doesn’t have to spend lots of money to become better prepared for an emergency.  The most important investment is the time given freely by your community volunteers in identifying the risks and the local resources you might call upon to deal with an emergency. 

Please be advised that financial support to community emergency planning, administered through the Severe Weather Recovery grant for community based recovery and resilience work, has now ceased with immediate effect. Alternative funding streams will be explored, for example Community Chest Grants and Community Infrastructure Levy funding opportunities.

Please be assured that Resilience and Emergency Management as a team will continue to provide advice, guidance, support, training and resources to communities wishing to develop their resilience.

In the meantime, communities who require support to respond to COVID19 may be eligible to apply for Coronavirus Funding.

Community Chest grants can be used to support a wide range of local groups and activities, including projects that tackle community safety issues. 

GOV.UK's Community Emergency Plan Toolkit contains a list of funding sources and search engines to helping you find funding.

Funding Central  is a free website for charities, voluntary and community organisations with access to lots of funding opportunities, tools and resources.
