The Volant Trust accepts applications from charities in the UK and internationally that demonstrate a strong focus on alleviating social deprivation and helping vulnerable groups who have been particularly impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Applications for medical equipment and the production or distribution of PPE will also be considered. They cannot cover costs already incurred or activities which have already taken place.
Who can apply?
Registered charities, community interest companies, community organisations and social enterprises.
What can the grant be used for?
They specifically provide funding towards project and administrative core costs. Although for the Covid-19 response fund, applications can be submitted for projects which include PPE or other essential medical equipment with awards made at the sole discretion of the Trustees. They will not generally fund capital expenditure.
Is there a deadline?
Applications are open now and run until 31 December 2021, with decisions to be made by April 2022.
