As a result of an analysis of data gathered by the Community Connectors it has been identified that there is a gap in shopping support for residents in the Newtown and Welshpool area.
An opportunity has arisen for a third sector organisation, social enterprise or community group to apply for funding to set up a service that will help fill the gap in shopping support in the area. This could be providing an escorted service to accompany people while they shop, helping people compile a shopping list and delivering their shopping to them or help with on-line shopping.
The funding is available to cover the initial set up costs, however the service must be sustainable after the initial funding has been used. The funding is available for a short period and initiatives will need to be set up and delivering a service by the 31st March 2020.
