HOW WILL YOU USE THIS PRIZE?
We would like to fund some of the transport costs for our adult friendship scheme activities. The cost per trip can vary from £160 for local trips to £300 for further away trips. The primary aim of the scheme is to reduce social isolation for our members, while a secondary bonus is that it can provide short breaks for carers and families. The scheme is run by a project coordinator, deputy coordinator, paid community support workers and volunteers and is used by a total of over 75 members. Although Essex County Council provide some funding towards this scheme, we have a deficit of £11k which we have to rely on grants and generosity to make up.
