Making a difference during Coronavirus
We currently have two key areas of support open for applications as part of our response to the Coronavirus pandemic. The first is our Emergency Fund, offering organisations grants of up to £10,000, and the other is our Emergency Bridging Loans, offering unsecured loans of up to £60,000 for charities, CICs and CIO with an immediate 6 month payment holiday.
To see the difference funding is making, take a look at our Emergency Funding Case Studies page, where you can see examples of those who have received funding, along with a full list of organisations who have received grants so far.
