Alongside helping to address extreme poverty and disadvantage Sussex Community Foundation would like to particularly encourage applications which support people disproportionately impact by Covid-19 such as women, Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities and children and young people.
If your group has already received funding from the Sussex Crisis Fund since April 2021, you cannot reapply.
How much and what can you apply for

• Mental health and well-being support
