Grants available to support London focused local groups through Lockdown 2.0

A number of grants are available this winter, including our H&F Winter Covid Fund, and through London Community Response . It is recommended that groups responding to coronavirus in the community apply today as funding is limited.

The H&F Winter Covid Fund

We have partnered with H&F council to offer grants of £100- £1,000 to locally based groups working with people who face risk this winter, including those whose vital services are affected by the social distancing and isolation measures in place. This includes those particularly focusing on the extra needs of at-risk groups, including people who are:

  • unable to cope with isolation
  • in need of educational support
  • suffering from mental health issues

London Community Response Funding

This is the latest round of funding from the London Community Response – a unique collation of over 65 funders from across sectors. So far, over £42m has been distributes to London’s civil society organisations through the collaboration, with the funding awarded to groups in all 33 boroughs.

Priority for funding will be given to the following:

  • Equity and Inclusion – organisations led by and for marginalised communities and those most affected by the covid-19 crisis (particularly Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME);Deaf and Disabled; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender ( LGBT+); and/or women’s- led groups);
  •  Strong connections – groups who have a strong reach to people at high risk of negative impacts from covid-19 (in terms of health outcomes, as well as social and economic issues); and/or
  • Smaller organisations- typically those with a turnover of up to £1m a year (though we welcome applications from grassroots and much smaller groups too).

To help you find out more about this funding, including what the priorities are for this programme and how the application process works, they’re hosting a webinar for London’s civil society groups on Monday 16 November 2020 at 2pm. As well as providing you with more information, they’ll  also be on hand to answer any questions that you may have. If you can join them then please click here to register for the webinar,and if you cannot make it do email them here  to receive a copy of the slides from the session.
