Essex residents urged to book lateral flow tests




Support for vulnerable groups

If you are clinically extremely vulnerable to Covid, you can get support to stay safe and well. We've received extra funding to provide the help you might need, from practical tasks to mental wellbeing.



Donate your disused laptop

Essex County Council (ECC) is appealing to residents and businesses to donate laptops to support children and young people in need. We've already donated 160 to colleges in Essex.




Get funding for your community group with the Essex Lottery


A common misconception is that only charities can benefit from Essex Lottery funding. If your organisation provides community activities or services that benefit local residents, you could sign up and get funding too.


Get help with your fuel bills

Earlier this year, we launched Warm Homes Essex with the Citizens Advice Service.

The initiative aims to help people who may be in fuel poverty this winter. The team of advisors can help you with fuel debt, saving on energy around the home and accessing grants for energy saving improvements.


 Get Back to Business with free advice

Back to Business Essex is here to support businesses in Essex.

Whether you need support with finances, staffing, operations, marketing or supply chain.
