Voluntary sector

The National Emergencies Trust (NET) have launched an appeal to raise funds for local charities. The appeal donations will be managed by the British Red Cross and grants will be distributed through local Community Foundations.

Charities should not apply direct to NET. RVA is currently sourcing further information about the local provision and how charities will be able to apply. Berkshire Community Fund will oversee administration of the grants in our local area and they will have more information about this from Monday 23 March. We will keep you updated as soon as we have full information.

In the meantime, you can read about the NET public appeal here.
