Metro Mayor Steve Rotheram, in partnership with the Community Foundation for Merseyside, has launched the LCR Cares COVID-19 Community Support Fund to support community and voluntary organisations on the frontline. Funding has also been provided by the National Emergencies Trust (NET) to support local need.
Funding will be initially awarded under the following priorities:
- Food/care package delivery to vulnerable people self-isolating
- Delivery of services and projects supporting the most vulnerable, such as older people e.g. a telephone support/friendship service or delivering online activities to help reduce isolation
- Emotional and mental health wellbeing
- Financial Inclusion, support to access benefits and debt advice
These priorities will be reviewed regularly and changed/additions made as fundraising and the outbreak develops.
