Funding to Help Voluntary & Community Organisations Impacted by Covid-19

The National Emergencies Trust in partnership with Crowdfunder UK is making £1.2 million in match funding available to help voluntary and community organisations overcome the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The funding aims to support organisations including UK charities, CIC’s, churches and other religious organisations by helping them to counter financial challenges created by the pandemic, including the inability to fundraise in the usual ways, reductions in staff and volunteers, and increased demand on their services.

Up to £20,000 in match-funding is available to either launch new local initiatives or to enable them to continue existing services, including health and wellbeing services; services addressing food poverty; and community response coordination.

The funding, which is being made available through the Local Action Fund, must be spent in full by the 31st December 2022.
