Non Frenguelli looks at DSC’s research into COVID-19 response funding, highlighting innovative and boundary-pushing BAME-funders, and organisations for groups and individuals in the BAME-community, that are challenging how the funding sector responds to crises. Find out more.
The London Community Response to the COVID-19 pandemic is coordinated by London Funders, the membership network for funders and investors of London’s civil society. There are three types of grants available in the new wave of funding announced on 1 July 2020:
- Crisis grants are for organisations that need to provide food, essentials and support as a matter of urgency to communities in crisis;
- Enable grants support work that helps to prevent difficulties arising from the crisis escalating, and that enables people to emerge from the crisis; and
- Adapt grants help organisations to restart, adapt or collaborate for the future.
The application process is open to all civil society organisations across the capital. You can apply for funding under this wave even if you have previously received funding under wave one (food and essentials) or wave 2 (crisis response or delivering differently).
