Funding and Fundraising
If you are looking for funding sources to help tackle the current crisis,  Martin Lewis from Money Saving Expert, has set up a new fund.
  • Local groups can apply for funding of between £5k and £20k.  Be quick – deadline for the fund is 25 March 2020.
  • Martin Lewis says: “Examples could include foodbanks, charities engaged in community aid, financial advice help and more. My hope is to get the money distributed within the next couple of weeks, and I’m looking for projects that are up and running, or are in the process of being set up – as we want to deliver help at speed. As this is all about speedy delivery, applications close at 11.59pm on Wednesday 20 March 2020 – I’ll extend it in the unlikely event we don’t get enough applications. If you’ve questions about the charity grant applications, contact Archna/Jonathan, but please keep them short and sweet – we want to keep this a nimble process”.
