Since May 2023, your local Conservative councillors have used their allocation from the Council's Wirral Together fund to support local good causes, community groups and small charities in Wallasey, Moreton and Saughall Massie.
Each Councillor across Wirral was allocated £1,000 (for the period May 2023 - March 2024), to be used within the Fund's criteria. Councillors don't handle the payments, invoices or bank details - instead, a council officer carries out checks on each application.
In response to applications we have received, we have tried to share this fund as widely as possible among eligible groups. Sadly, some applications had to be declined.
We've supported groups that work with young people and pensioners, those that help to tackle loneliness or money worries and those that help people get fit.
In Wallasey, since May 2023, Councillors Ian Lewis and Lesley Rennie have supported applications from local groups and organisations including:
- 28th Wallasey Scout Group
- G.H.Peers Club
- Harrison Hall
- Oldershaw Rugby Club
- The Bronze Club
- Wallasey Community Anglers
- Wallasey Cricket Club
- Wallasey Division Girl Guides
- Wallasey Model Boat Society
- Wallasey Village in Bloom
In Moreton West & Saughall Massie, since May 2023, Councillors Colin Baldwin, Gary Bennett and Vida Wilson have supported applications from local groups and organisations including:
- CAP Money & Debt Advice (Saughall Massie)
- Can Do Food Club
- Christchurch Parish Centre
- Evolve - tackling substance misuse in the community
- Friends of Leasowe Lighthouse
- Moreton Football Club
- St Mary's Centre
- West Wirral Boys Club Amateur Boxing Club
While we sadly can't fund as many groups and organisations as we'd like, and the ones we have been able to support may be needing further funds, there are some links below that can help to identify other grants, information and funding opportunities:
- Community Foundation for Merseyside
- Wirral InfoBank
- Government 'Find a Grant' service
- Charities Aid Foundation
- Charity Commission
Our share of the Wirral Together Fund for the current year has now been fully committed and no further applications are invited.
If an allocation of funding is made available to us for 2024/25, we will contact all those groups who register below to let them know.
Please note: if your organisation is not based in, or active in either of the two wards listed, you will need to contact councillors in the ward where it is active or based, details are on the council website.
Priority will be given to groups and organisations that have not previously benefited from the Wirral Together Fund or those that, in the judgement of the councillor, can have the greatest impact.
