We've set up two funds to help vulnerable people affected by the outbreak and to support the charitable sector to recover from its impact on their work. So far, we've targeted these funds to our existing grantees responding to the crisis. We are now open to wider requests for support and there is a call for applications on the website. If you are thinking of applying please read the information carefully before requesting funding - we will not be able to consider any applications which do not meet the criteria we have set out. However, if you do not fit the criteria for the Coronavirus funds, remember you can make a general application to us at any time whether it is directly linked to Coronavirus or not, so long as you are eligible for Community Foundation funding.
You can find out more about our Coronavirus Response and Recovery Fund here and, if you want to support us, you can give on our JustGiving page, click here. We are also a distributor for the National Emergency Trust appeal - information about that is also on the fund page.
