A Norfolk town council is offering cash grants to volunteers in the area who are supporting vulnerable people amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Hunstanton Town Council have said they recognise the rise in pressures on the voluntary sector during the coronavirus outbreak as charities and groups do what they can to support the most vulnerable in our communities.

In response the council is providing cash grants to registered charities, local community and volunteer groups and businesses providing “relief and support to people in Hunstanton who are at risk of vulnerability and hardship because of the covid-19 crisis.”

It includes: delivering food and essential supplies, providing advice and support about physical and mental health, providing advice and support about employment and welfare benefits, support networks and services for the elderly or isolated or running costs for providing this support.
