News - CWVA helps Entep distribute more funding


Share this

Cheshire West Voluntary Action (CWVA) has worked with Entep Properties Limited again to hand out £20,000 to community sector organisations.

Entep, a successful partnership between Essar and Cheshire West and Chester Council, promotes and encourages industrial and commercial activity in the borough, with a particular focus on helping form and develop new small businesses.

Entep offers industrial units and office spaces at two prime locations in the Ellesmere Port area: Canal Bridge Enterprise Centre and Rother Drive Business Centre.

This is the second time that Entep has called on the expertise of the CWVA team to help distribute much-needed funds to community sector organisations either based in the Ellesmere Port area or providing services there.

Funding can be used for a wide range of things, such as paying towards sessional workers or part salaries, purchasing equipment, volunteer expenses, training to upskill volunteers or staff or overheads (for example, utility bills for community buildings, room hire, membership subscriptions, insurance and more).

The following organisations have received funding from Entep.

  • Messy Mischief Makers
  • Chapter
  • ND Directed
  • Stanney Grange Community Centre
  • Soul Kitchen
  • Play in the Port
  • The Port Men in Sheds
  • Thrive to Survive
  • Trinity Methodist Church
  • Milestone Mums
  • Bridge Wellness Gardens
  • Whitby Park Community Garden
  • Westminster Families

This is one of a wide range of funding pots managed by CWVA, helping community organisations grow and connecting them with funders.

Don’t forget, CWVA’s website has a dedicated funding section so you can find out about some of the opportunities coming up.
