Aims/priorities: From our conversations with small and local charities and the wider sector, we know that to be able recover from this health crisis charities need unrestricted funding and the space and support to adapt their organisational, income generation and service delivery models which have been significantly impacted by COVID-19.
To survive the aftermath of the pandemic, charities have needed to alter the way in which they operate, deliver services and source income. Alongside crucial funding, we know charities need the space, support and resources to be able to do this and become more resilient to future challenges. This kind of work is complex, it takes time and involves the whole organisation and with the COVID Recovery Fund programme, a Development Partner will be appointed to work hand in hand with charities through this process.
The Development Partner will support you in this journey through your own internal resources, a range of external partners and consultants through our Enhance capacity building programme and will help you share and learn across charities through structured peer forums.
Who can apply? This fund is open to small and medium sized charities with an income of between £25,000 and £1 million a year that are helping people overcome complex social issues such as mental health, homelessness and domestic abuse.
Grant amount: Two-year unrestricted grant of up to £50,000 alongside a Development Partner to help charities navigate a tumultuous future.
Application process: Not open yet
Deadline: Applications will open from 10am 3 August 2020 and will close at 5pm 11 September 2020.
