The National Emergencies Trust has launched a £1.2m Local Action Fund with Crowdfunder UK to help voluntary and community organisations overcome the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. The fund offers support to organisations including UK charities, CIC’s, churches and other religious organisations by helping them to counter financial challenges created by the pandemic, including the inability to fundraise in the usual ways, reductions in staff and volunteers, and increased demand on their services. Up to £10,000 in match-funding is available to either launch new local initiatives or to enable them to continue existing services. Eligible services include: health and wellbeing services; services addressing food poverty; and community response coordination. The deadline for applications is the 22nd October 2021.
