Coronavirus (COVID-19) funding for voluntary and community organisations

Groups and organisations who have been adversely affected as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and are facing financial difficulty can apply for financial support.

There are three themes to the funding: mental health, business planning and sustainability, and COVID-19 resilience.

Organisations applying for funding will be asked to provide:

  • evidence they need funding
  • a breakdown of the funding required
  • evidence of where other funding streams have been applied for previously
