Fund for people in Jersey affected by Storm Ciarán reopens



A fund for people in Jersey affected by Storm Ciarán has reopened.


The Bailiff's Fund is designed to offer short-term aid from a pot of £175,000, raised mainly from charitable donations and pledges.


In the first round of funding, more than £80,000 was given to more than 50 families.

The process was being monitored and managed by Jersey Community Foundation, and the application deadline was 31 January, staff said.


Applications should be made online and are due to be reviewed by a panel by mid-February.

In the first round, grants ranged from £500 to £5,000, and similar sums are expected to be requested this time.

'Suffered hardship'


Previous applications ranged from replacement clothing and children's toys, to contributions to significant structural damage to property and cars. Anna Terry, CEO of Jersey Community Foundation, said the first round of applications "illustrated the scope of the damage and the extent to which our community needs this funding". She said: "Our community panel, which includes the bailiff, deputy Dr Helen Miles and Connétable Marcus Troy of St Clement, are all well placed to ensure the funds are directed to those that need it most.


"We welcome applications from any islander who has been displaced or has suffered hardship as a result of Storm Ciarán, and may need short-term aid to help them through difficulty."
