Updating our response to the Covid-19 crisis



The voluntary sector, and the many people it supports, continue to face an unprecedented challenge.


As a member of the sector, and a long-term supporter of small, front-line charities, we are working out how we can do our bit to help.  During lockdown, we focused on supporting our existing grant recipients. 


We are now ready to accept new applications within our existing programmes.  We understand that applications may include work responding to the Covid-19 crisis.  We will listen carefully to applicants and offer flexible and timely support as best we can.


We may need to adapt our approach as circumstances change.  We will update our website to alert you.
