New grants available to help during the pandemic

Are you already helping others during this crisis, but could do with some support? Do you have a great idea for a morale-boosting, community-spirited activity that can help keep everyone connected? We’re launching a new version of our Community Chest fund, in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Community Chest fund is a small grants scheme available to local people, groups and organisations. Right now we want to support the amazing neighbourly volunteering already going on – especially where it’s helping those who are finding it difficult to access other support. We also want to encourage positive activities that help keep people, healthy, happy and connected despite the challenges of social distancing. 

You can apply for up to £1,000 per project, and we’ll be assessing applications as they come in. For more details and an application form go to our dedicated web page.
