Thank you to SCVO for forwarding this:

Government emergency support funding for charities, distributed via the National Lottery Community Fund (NLCF), is now open to applications.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

NLCF will fund activities supporting  people and  communities affected by COVID-19.  They will also help organisations overcome any acute financial difficulties  they face as a result of the pandemic.

There are three kinds of grants available:

The application process is designed to be fast and simple. You can fill in an online form, you can email answers or submit a video instead.

They are prioritising:

  • Organisations supporting people and communities who experience disproportionate challenge and difficulty as a result of the covid-19 crisis
  • Organisations providing services and support for vulnerable people, for which there will be increased demand as a result of the covid-19 crisis
  • Organisations which connect communities and support communities to work together to respond to covid-19

I trust this is useful and as ever, please feel free to re-circulate as you feel appropriate.

Kindest regards

Edwin :-)
