Cambridge City Council has increased the maximum amount of funding that groups can apply for to run activities that support people who have fled Ukraine from £2,000 to £5,000 per application.

Groups can apply to the fund multiple times, on a rolling basis, with applications assessed on a first-come first-served basis.

However, subsequent applications will only be assessed once funds from a group’s previous application have been spent. The funding will be available until the provisional total fund of £100,000 is exhausted.

To be eligible for a United with Ukraine community grant, activities will need to focus on one or more of the following:

  • Supporting people from Ukraine to navigate life in the UK
  • Promoting community cohesion and integration
  • Delivering money advice and management
  • Supporting access to employment
  • Increasing people’s confidence in speaking English
  • Enhancing wellbeing, including activities for children

Cllr Mairéad Healy, executive councillor for equalities, anti-poverty and wellbeing, said: “We have increased the amount of funding available in response to feedback from groups, to make it easier for projects to get up and running. Whether you are part of an established community organisation, or a small group of residents who want to do something to support people from Ukraine to settle in Cambridge, please do consider applying for funding to help.”
