Cleveland Local Resilience Forum, has allocated a funding pot of £20,000 to help communities in the area increase their resilience and preparedness, ensuring they are prepared should a major incident occur.

Amounts of up to £2,000 will be awarded to small community initiatives and projects, led by community groups or voluntary organisations, which will directly benefit resilience and preparedness across the Cleveland LRF Area (the local Authority areas of Hartlepool, Middleborough, Redcar and Cleveland and Stockton on Tees).

Through this grant initiative, our aim is for more to be done at a local level, by providing small, one- off grants where communities need it most, helping them prepare for and respond to incidents.
