How much and what can you apply for
In response to the Covid-19 emergency, the priority for funding is:
- organisations supporting people who are at high risk from COVID-19
- organisations supporting people most likely to face increased demand and challenges as a result of the COVID-19 crisis
- organisations which connect communities and support communities to work together to respond to COVID-19.
Any groups seeking funding for projects that are not related to COVID-19 are asked not to apply at this time. They will review and update this decision in July 2020.
You can apply for funding for a wide range of different types of cost, including (but not limited to):
- one-off events
- small capital projects
- staff costs
- training costs
- utilities/running costs
- volunteer expenses.
How to apply
The application form is online and you will need to register to access it.
