Support for disadvantaged & vulnerable affected by covid-19 outbreak – Cheshire Community Foundation
Our covid-19 Response Grants Programme is for grants typically up to £5000 * (level of funding increased as of 31-3-20). It is open for applications from charitable organisations supporting the ongoing needs of disadvantaged and vulnerable people affected by the covid-19 outbreak, to ensure that their health and wellbeing is maintained. This includes CICs (with three unrelated Directors)
In addition, for this programme, we want to support small un-constituted emerging group who are responding positively to supporting disadvantaged communities affected by covid-19 at a very local level. If you can arrange for a larger charitable group to partner with you (for example (but not limited to) a church, another charity or community group) you can apply.
The charitable organisation must be able to provide their annual accounts and have a bank account in their name. They must be willing to act as the lead organisation for the application and spend of the grant.
For this programme, Town and Parish Councils are also eligible to apply.
