About the Fund

Councillor Paul Davies has worked with Longley Farm and Holmfirth Tech to establish a hardship fund for local people affected by the Coronavirus crisis.

The purpose of this fund is to support those residents living within the Holme Valley South district ward, who have an immediate financial need as a result of the Coronavirus epidemic.  Specifically, the grant is aimed at those who find themselves unable to cover basic necessities, such as food, heating, housing, or childcare, that cannot otherwise be addressed by the existing benefits system or the various Covid-19 government support packages.

The intention of the fund is to provide a temporary financial stop-gap whilst the applicant addresses their financial situation, and is not intended to provide a long term solution to financial hardship.

This is not a means-tested grant.  All residents living in the Holme Valley South council ward are eligible to apply.  Depending on need, a grant may be allocated up to the limits as indicated below:

  • £200 – 2 adults and 2 children
  • £150 – 1 adult and 2 children
  • £100 – 1 or 2 adults

Only one grant will be made per household.

The Fund will be administered by Holmfirth Tech Community Anchor, and the decisions will be made as to allocation of the fund by an independent local panel who will review applications made in relation to the funds criteria.  All discussions within the panel will be confidential. The panel may wish to contact the applicant to find out more details, and to explore whether any further support may be needed.

Please complete this form if you want to apply for help from the fund.
