PH Holt Foundation has opened a new £250,000 Resilience Fund. The fund is specifically for Merseyside charities, aiming to address the negative impact of the Covid-19 pandemic upon vulnerable or disadvantaged communities in the region.
It seeks to support activities that enable people to access opportunities improving their well-being and connectivity.
Charities should already be working with people in one of the following priority areas :
- Children and young people
- Mental health support
- Victims of domestic abuse
This is a one-off grant fund, available to small and medium sized charities with a track record of delivering successful and effective programmes that reach those most in need.
Existing or previous grant holders, and new applicants, can apply for grants starting at £5,000. In exceptional cases grants can rise above £10,000, to a maximum of £20,000.
Applications can be made at any time. Decisions can be expected within 4-6 weeks of submission.
The Resilience Fund is time limited and will close once the allocation of funds is exhausted.
To download the criteria and the application form, visit the PH Hold website.
The Resilience Fund is operating outside of the main PH Holt grant programme. The main programme remains open for grant applications.Back to blog
