Coronavirus Community Resilience Fund

Folkestone Town Council will wherever possible continue support our local community. For this reason, the Town Council has created a £20,000 Community Resilience Fund for those who are putting in place voluntary arrangements to help those in need.

Traditionally grant applications have been reviewed throughout the year, however bearing in mind the circumstances applications will now be reviewed as swiftly as possible.

It is also noted that applicants may not be able to comply with providing all the information normally required. Applicants are asked to complete as much information as possible and forward to the Town Clerk via email to jennifer.childs@folkestone-tc.gov.uk
