The Coronavirus Community Fund has been established to support community groups through this unprecedented time.
The focus of the fund will be to offer community organisations emergency funding to deal with emerging issues in the community as a result of the continuing threat of coronavirus.
The fund will support the following:
- Community organisations that are preparing themselves to appropriately respond and continue their work in a difficult work environment, and to tailor their specialist services to give help to the people who need it the most
- The development of advice and support initiatives to fill gaps for people and places where there are no current suitable services
- Groups that provide vital community support to maintain some level of viability through these uncertain times where they are experiencing a significant loss of income as a result of the current crisis.
Priority will be given to organisations supporting those most vulnerable to meet needs that have arisen as a result of the current crisis including older people, people with long term health conditions, people with mental health difficulties, people affected by homelessness and other groups who are particularly vulnerable at this time. Within this, currently, priority will be given to groups undertaking food and medicine deliveries.
