This page is here to provide you with signposting links, resources and good news stories from the Winchester District. We want to help your group or organisation be the best it can be. We aim to provide you with the tools and resources you need to support your service users and your community. 

We are working closely at present with Winchester City Council on a project focusing on local Ukrainians. We hope to attract more volunteer translators, address any barriers which might prevent Ukrainians accessing local services and help to set up a Ukrainian Community Group

Winchester City Council has announced £50,000 of funding to help Ukrainian guests in the district settle into their local communities and adjust to Winchester life.  

Ukrainians wishing to apply for grants can do so via Flexigrant. Further information on the funding criteria can be found on WCC’s Ukraine webpage. 

If you are looking for support and advice funding or just want to have a chat about your group/organisation, please contact: 

Bruce White (Voluntary Sector Consultant) : bruce.white@cfirst.org.uk 07384 115 320.   

He would be happy to undertake a specific funding search for you using FUNDS ONLINE from the Directory of Social Change (DSC).
