Coronavirus Community Support Fund

The Government’s new Coronavirus Community Support Fund for small and medium sized charities and social enterprises will open for applications at 10:00 on Friday 22 May.

The Fund has two key objectives:

  1. To increase community support to vulnerable people affected by the COVID-19 crisis, through the work of civil society organisations.
  2. To reduce temporary closures of essential charities and social enterprises, ensuring services for vulnerable people impacted by COVID-19 have the financial resources to operate, and so reduce the burden on public services.

Grants will allow organisations to meet service costs, where they are experiencing increased demand and/or short-term income disruption. Grants will also allow organisations to refocus services to address more immediate beneficiary needs in light of COVID-19.

Funding is being distributed by the National Lottery Community Fund. Further details on the fund and how to apply will be available on their website Funding page.
