The National Lottery Community Fund has launched the Coronavirus Community Support Fund (CCSF). It is part of the Government’s £750m support package for charities and local enterprises. The fund is aimed primarily at small to medium organisations in England to support you to continue to deliver services to people and communities affected by Covid-19. If your organisation is applying remember you can contact for support in making an application, contact us 0333 321 3021 or email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
It will fund:
- Activities supporting people and communities affected by Covid-19
- Help for organisations to overcome acute financial difficulties caused by the pandemic
You can apply for one or both of these things, but you can only apply once. If your application is unsuccessful, you will not be able to apply again. You can apply for funding between £300 to £10,000 or for over £10,000.
This funding stands alone from the National Lottery Community Fund’s regular funding streams (Awards for All and Reaching Communities). Therefore, if you apply to the CCSF fund, this does not prevent you from applying to Awards for All or Reaching Communities when they re-open later in the year.
