For this round of funding Answer Cancer is prioritising the following groups that have been identified with low levels of cancer screening:
A £1m Community Support Fund will be available to communities across the UK to help those in need in their local communities. Teams in each shop will work together with their communities to choose the best way to use the fund. Help could include setting up additional local delivery services to support the self-isolating, the vulnerable, the elderly and those looking after them; delivering boxes of staples to local care homes and community groups, and donating products to create care packages for customers to share with vulnerable neighbours. Applications can be made in-store.
The Antonio Carluccio Foundation was established in 2017 by the famous Italian cookery writer, cook and food expert with the principle of ‘Training to Feed, feeding For Life’. The funding is intended to support hospitality related training and development, to promote a better understanding of food origins and nutrition and to make direct support available for organisations working to feed those in need.
UK registered charities can apply.
To be eligible, applicants need to have up-to-date policies covering the following areas:
The Morrisons Foundation Trustees is making £500,000 available through the Homeless Support Fund to support charities caring for the homeless during the coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak and ensure help gets to those who need it most.
The funding is for homeless people who are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19 because they are more likely to have underlying health conditions and are less able to access basic sanitation. For those who are sleeping rough or are in a crowded night shelter, it is impossible to self-isolate and maintain social distance.
We are now suspending applications to our emergency capital programme in order to process the high volume of those already received. We will provide a further update on the programme after outstanding grant assessments have been completed. If you have already started an application, it can still be submitted.
Due to the unprecedented demand for applications we have temporarily closed our application process to allow us to distribute the funds we have available to date. Applications will re-open once additional funding becomes available.
These grants are available to organisations seeking to help the individual families that they work with affected by poverty due to the Covid-19 virus. £35 is available per child for children up to and including 18. Please note that Cash 4 Kids could change this sum at their discretion at anytime.
Tesco Bags of Help is responding to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis by setting up a new short-term fund to support local communities. The programme is set up to support organisational need in this time of crisis rather than fund specific projects. Successfuls applications will receive a single payment award of £500 to organisations who are supporting vulnerable groups. Due to the need to respond quickly to the emergency we have created a streamlined application process and payment process to make it easier to get funds distributed quickly.
