North Ayrshire Covid-19 fund supports Dalry Community Development Hub

Covid-19 fund North Ayrshire

Dalry Community Development Hub has been looking at opportunities where they can help the vulnerable people within the community of Dalry during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

After speaking to other community groups and the local authority, to help understand what they are doing, Dalry Community Development Hub was able to identify individuals and families who need support, but might fall outside the scope and reach of other organisations in North Ayrshire.

The organisation then applied to Community Windpower’s joint Covid-19 crisis fund with the Dalry Parish Boundary Trust with the focus on helping number of families.

Our joint Covid-19 crisis fund has provided a grant of £1,000 which will be used for to help specific opportunities identified, with items including food parcels, and payment vouchers for gas and electricity.

Diane Wood, community benefits director at Community Windpower, which operates the Millour Hill and Dalry Community Wind Farms in North Ayrshire, said: “It’s fantastic that the Dalry Community Development Hub are able to work with other North Ayrshire organisations to ensure as many people and families as possible are supported during this situation.

“That’s why, together with the Dalry Parish Boundary Trust, we quickly approved the grant application.

“The funding will help support the needs of the vulnerable, both individuals and families within the community of during the current COVID-19 pandemic.

“It will also support the health and wellbeing challenges that exist, in particular, through social isolation challenges that we are all currently living through.

“We hope the items provided through our funding will help make a difference to the lives of the residents and their families, in this difficult time.”
