The Coronavirus Charity Help Fund has been set up by Martin Lewis of Money Saving Expert, to help those affected by the coronavirus. Small or local charities are able to apply to receive a grant of £5-20K for specific coronavirus poverty relief projects. As a guide – small charities are considered to be those with a turnover of £10 million or less. They will also consider applications from subsidaries of larger parent charities.
They are especially interested in projects that directly help people affected by the effects of the virus, such as projects that provide access to food, toiletries and basic necessities, as well as community projects that help people in isolation.
The fund is seeking to support projects that can help people now, so will welcome applications for existing projects that could be scaled up with extra money, or projects that are in the process of being set up.
Time is of the essence you are encouraged to highlight your project’s objectives and outcomes concisely; consider using bullet points rather than lengthy answers. Data will only be used for the purpose of giving grants.
This is all about speedy delivery. Applications will close at 11:59pm, Wednesday 25 March 2020, so act now.
