Community Foundation for Tyne & Wear and Northumberland
Tyne & Wear and Northumberland
The Community Foundation has launched a two stage response fund:
1. Response Stage: Extra money will be made available to charities known to the foundation and current grantees who support older people and other vulnerable groups affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
2. Recovery Stage: Funding will be made more widely available to local charities and community organisations whose operations and finances have been affected so they can recover and continue their activities once the outbreak eases.
In the first phase, all funding will be allocated proactively by the Community Foundation, other local funders and infrastructure organisations. Grants will prioritise organisations that are working with people over 70, especially isolated older people and those living in care settings.
After the initial emergency response, funding will be made available to organisations that work with other vulnerable and affected people.
How to apply:
The fund is not currently accepting unsolicited applications. The process for awarding grants for the 'recovery phase' will be announced at a later date once the fund knows how much money is available.
