"We are pleased to again provide support to our key community and voluntary groups in Rochford district with the voluntary sector grant. This grant money has enabled our residents to be supported in some amazing ways in previous years and we are keen to see applications from new and emerging groups across the district. "We particularly welcome new ideas and projects as our communities and residents continue to work together in these challenging times and the cost of living crisis.”
