The Warrington Fund – Achieving More Together

Despite the visible signs of economic success, living in Warrington can be tough. Many members of our community, often unseen, suffer intense poverty, isolation and lack of opportunity. We believe that with your help we can change this. By working together and pooling resources, we can make our town stronger, fairer and happier, enabling local people to meet the challenges they face and achieve their full potential.

This new initiative was launched on 13th March 2024 (event photos), click here to view & apply for the Warrington grants programmes.

Warrington is one of the most economically successful towns in the UK, yet for many people living in the most deprived areas, daily life is challenging in almost every way.

Since 2020, CCF have invested over £1.1 million (187 grants) in Warrington communities but sadly there are still so many strong grant applications that we just don’t have the funds to support.

The deep deprivation across the central 6 wards and beyond clearly demonstrates there is significant demand for support and the skills, knowledge and expertise of the voluntary sector but we have seen an increasing number of charities dissolving due to lack of funding as well as an increasing number of applications to plug the gap that local government no longer covers.

We are seeking generous individuals, families and purpose driven businesses to support their local community; pooling resources into a Warrington Fund to achieve the greatest impact; achieving more with less and giving back to Warrington, strategically.

The Warrington Fund represents a collaborative effort, bringing together communities, charities, and public services across the borough to address pressing issues such as poverty, loneliness, mental health challenges, and hidden homelessness.

This short film demonstrates the strategic interventions only a Community Foundation can make, here in Warrington.

We need to help families in Warrington to break the cycle, give hope and aspiration.
