Funding to Support Migrant & Refugee Charities Affected by the Pandemic (England)

The Barrow Cadbury Trust has re-opened the COVID-19 Support Fund. The fund provides emergency response funding to organisations suffering acute financial difficulties as a result of the pandemic and operating within the Specialist Migration Sector. The fund originally closed for applications on the 2nd August 2020 but had fewer application than expected. This, the second round of applications has also extended the eligibility criteria. The programme is now open to organisations with an income of £10,000 to £3 million that provide services and support targeted at refugees and migrants. This includes organisations that only work with these groups and those that have more general objects but are seeking to maintain or expand existing services targeted at refugees and migrants. The maximum organisations can apply for is £50,000 or three months’ expenditure, whichever is the smaller. There is no application deadline and the fund will close when all its funding has been awarded. Organisations are advised to submit their application without delay. Click here
