The London Community Response Fund now stands at £3.2million, with further funders expected to announce their contributions in the coming days, ahead of applications opening for civil society groups affected by the crisis to apply later in the week.

The fund, which will be coordinated by London Funders, will be available to organisations facing immediate financial pressures and uncertainty because of the covid-19 outbreak – with reports of organisations dealing with increased demand for services, sickness affecting staff and volunteers, and lower donations.

Details of the funding programme’s first wave of applications will be published on the London Funders website in the coming days, and groups can sign up at https://londonfunders.org.uk/our-blog/new-emergency-support-fund-announced-help-community-and-voluntary-organisations to be kept updated when details are announced
