This funding has supported a range of essentials for families, individuals and young children including food, bill payments and the purchase of vital furniture and white goods. The success of this programme has resulted in West Sussex County Council putting further funding into the programme to meet additional needs.
The application deadline has now been extended to Friday 9 April with the spend deadline of 31 May.
Grants of up to £5,000 are available from Sussex Community Foundation to help local organisations support families, children and young people with emergency food and other provisions.
