Community Support Fund launched to support areas affected by #remploy closures

I thought that people associated with DPULOs would be interested in this new funding stream, launched as part of the People Help & Support Package associated with the Remploy announcement made yesterday.

The Community Support Fund is a community-based package of financial and non-financial support for disabled people in the areas affected by the Remploy factory closures. It was launched by the Minister for Disabled People, Maria Miller MP, on 10 July 2012.

£1.5 million is being made available through the Community Support Fund for local Disabled People’s User-Led Organisations (DPULO) and Voluntary & Community Sector organisations (VCS) in areas affected by the Remploy factory closures across England, Scotland and Wales. The Community Support Fund complements individual support that is also being made available through the People & Help Support Package.

You can find all the information you need to find out more about the Community Support Fund, and how to apply, here: http://odi.dwp.gov.uk/communitysupportfund
