Promoting and supporting voluntary activity across South Northamptonshire


8 December 2021

The Welcome Fund

The Welcome Fund has been established in 2021 and is provided through public donations and funding from two local donors, Archways Estate Agents and Barratt Homes.

The scheme offers grants to support community groups and charities to provide a broad range of assistance that addresses hardship for refugees and people seeking asylum, especially including families and individuals from Afghanistan.

Applications are accepted from small and locally managed, voluntary, community or self-help groups based in Northamptonshire.

To be eligible, groups must have:

  • People volunteering to help with the activity who are not part of the group’s management committee.
  • A set of written rules or constitution that the group adheres to and that contains a dissolution policy.
  • Written procedures for keeping young people and/or vulnerable people safe, otherwise known as a child protection or vulnerable people’s policy.
  • An equality and diversity policy.
  • A suitable group bank account that meets the Foundation’s grant fraud policy requirements.

The deadline for applications is 7 January 2021.
